Dartmouth Research Poster Sessions

Poster sessions are an opportunity for undergraduates engaged in research in the sciences to share their research with students and faculty.  There are several opportunities to present posters on campus, and some students may also present posters at national meetings and conferences.  On campus poster presentations may involve projects that are complete, in progress, or even just in the beginning stages. Student presenters stand beside their posters during the presentation to explain and/or answer questions about the research. Participants may include:

  • Women in Science Project Interns
  • Sophomore Science Scholars
  • Junior Science Scholars
  • Howard Hughes Medical Institute Fellows
  • Hellman Scholars
  • Mellam Fellows
  • Presidential Scholars
  • Senior Honors Thesis students
  • Leave term grant recipients
  • Senior Fellows
  • Students engaged in any faculty-mentored research

Planning for your poster:

  • consult with your advisor
  • if you are working on the research with other students, you may collaborate on a single poster rather than each making a separate poster
  • for specific information and tips on making a poster, refer to the Guide to Designing & Printing a Research Poster
  • for some on campus poster sessions (e.g. Wetterhahn Science Symposium, Student Forum for Global Learning) there will be NO COST to you for printing your poster if you received funding through the Office of Undergraduate Advising & Research (Dean of Faculty office) for the research you will be presenting (this does not apply to departmental poster events -- in those cases, consult with the academic department or program about funding for printing posters). 
    • Blitz "undergraduate research" BEFORE printing your poster.
    • If UGAR will pay for poster printing for a specific poster session, note that there is funding for students to print just ONE poster.  Be sure to proofread carefully before printing!
