Student Research Conference 2019

Wednesday, April 24, 2019
10:30 PM-8:30 PM
Ballston Center, Arlington, VA

The Annual Marymount Student Research Conference is open to all Marymount undergraduate and graduate students. It is an opportunity for students to share their scholarly or creative work with the broader Marymount community. 

Scholarly work across all disciplines are welcome: the sciences, arts, humanities, and profession-specific; graduate and undergraduate.
  • Original research or creative works completed as part of a thesis or capstone activity,
  • Projects that apply current best-evidence to solve a ‘real-world’ problem (e.g., case reports or action research projects),
  • Projects that create new insights about existing knowledge or offer new theories.
At Marymount, we take your scholarly work very seriously. Classes are cancelled on the day of the student research conference to allow all our students to attend the conference whether presenting a project or learning from the works of classmates. Faculty who helped guide your projects are happy to serve as mentors in preparing your presentation. Family and our local community are invited to attend. It is a day of celebration.

Applications for 2019 are now closed. Thank you to Everyone who applied.

Students (and Faculty mentors) should be notified of decisions of the committee no later than March 25.

The 2019 Student Research Conference (SRC) provides an opportunity for undergraduate and graduate students to present their work in a variety of formats.

Oral Presentations These are 15 minute presentations followed by 5 minutes of audience questions that allow the presenter to provide in-depth insight into their work.
Poster Presentations: Projects, summarized on a 48" x 42" poster and displayed in one large room or hallway. During a dedicated poster session, authors stand at their poster and the ‘audience’ walks among the posters, talking with the authors one-on-one. Posters are typically prepared using a powerpoint poster template and professionally printed. Assistance is available for preparing and printing posters.
Visual Art Presentations: Visual images displayed in various formats depending on the medium. 

Note to Students: This is the rubric that will be used to evaluate the proposals. 

A panel of faculty members, representing a variety of disciplines, judge each proposal.
The schedule for 2019 conference will be posted around the middle of March 2019.
