The UNCG Graduate School is currently hosting the 10th Annual Graduate Research and Creativity Showcase: “Scholarship That Matters.”

The Showcase competition lets students communicate their research and creative work through short, narrated videos. More than 40 videos have been submitted, including 12 from the College of Arts & Sciences (see list and links below).

This hybrid event features an online preliminary round, which leads to an in-person final competition. The final competition is held Friday, April 8, 2022 from 1:30 – 4:00 PM at the Weatherspoon Art Museum.

Creating the videos prepares students to deliver “elevator pitches” on their research. Using images, graphics, and jargon-free language, the videos can serve as an advertisement for students’ scholarship, either as a “video abstract” associated with an electronic thesis or dissertation (ETD) submission in ProQuest or as a department or University outreach feature.

The Showcase is open to any currently enrolled UNCG graduate student engaged in original scholarship with a UNCG faculty member. Each video is eligible to advance to the final competition and be to eligible win one of six $1,000 awards. Submissions are limited to one per student, regardless of their role in a project.
