Falk Student Research Celebration

The Falk Student Research Celebration is an annual event that takes place to highlight undergraduate and graduate student research projects mentored by Falk Faculty. This event allows students to exercise what they have learned in the classroom, laboratory, through mentoring, and through peer-to-peer exchanges. Students submit posters for display and are judged by a committee of faculty, staff, and peers.

Participants compete for educational funds to present their posters on a larger stage, to attend a conference to gain further insights into their respective fields, or for other educational endeavors.

The Falk Student Research Celebration inspires students to get involved in a wide variety of academic research. This helps students discover new interests, opportunities, and new applications; building critical skills necessary for future careers.
