Research Forum Winners Compete at State
Graduate students from across the state came together at the University of South Florida to showcase their research and creative projects on Friday at the Annual Statewide Graduate Student Research Symposium. University of Central Florida came out successful with one first place winner and two second place winners from just seven categories.
The Symposium, put on by the Florida Council of Graduate Deans, allowed students to earn bragging rights for top research projects in the state, as well as provided them opportunities to share scholarly research and to network and discuss possible research collaborations with other students and faculty in the state of Florida.

Graduate students representing seven universities from across Florida displayed their research through poster presentations. Students had already earned top marks in their category from their own respective university graduate research competitions. First and second place certificates were awarded in each of the seven categories: Arts and Humanities, Behavioral and Social Sciences, Biological and Chemical Sciences, Education, Engineering, Health Sciences, Natural and Physical Sciences.
UCF had 13 students compete in the Symposium, all winners are from this past year’s Graduate Research Forum.
Congratulations to all of our students who represented UCF at the Statewide Symposium, and congratulations to the winners.
