Reception to recognize interdisciplinary graduate student research

The Office of Interdisciplinary Graduate Programs (OIGP) will hold a reception on April 1 to celebrate interdisciplinary graduate student research. The deadline for students' poster submissions and award applications is March 1.

The reception will be 2-3:30 p.m. April 1 in the Purdue Memorial Union Ballrooms. A brief program will begin at 2:30 p.m. and will include an awards presentation. Refreshments will be served. RSVP to oigp@purdue.edu or 496-1016.

The Interdisciplinary Graduate Program Reception will feature multiple student research posters from each of its interdisciplinary graduate programs. These programs are American studies, biomedical sciences, comparative literature, computational life sciences, computational science and engineering, ecological sciences and engineering, food science, gerontology, information security, ingestive behavior, life sciences, linguistics, nutrition, philosophy and literature, and women’s studies.

Graduate students interested in presenting interdisciplinary research either in poster form or as a PowerPoint, Prezi, or Multimedia presentation are encouraged to submit an application by March 1. OIGP also invites poster submissions from graduate students who are conducting interdisciplinary research but are not formally affiliated with the OIGP programs. Information is available at https://www.gradschool.purdue.edu/oigp/calendar/reception.cfm

Applications for OIGP 's Most Outstanding Interdisciplinary Project Award (MOIPA) will be accepted through March 1. MOIPA is a financial award given to a recipient and runner-up whose research is deemed, by a faculty panel, to be particularly interdisciplinary. Applicants must be enrolled in one of Purdue's 15 interdisciplinary graduate programs to apply. More information is at https://www.gradschool.purdue.edu/oigp/calendar/awardapplication.cfm.

Attendees at the reception will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite poster/presentation.  The presenter with the most votes will receive the Purdue Interdisciplinary Audience Choice Award.
