OIGP Spring Reception Application

Submissions are now open.

We appreciate your interest in applying to submit a poster presentation for the 2022 Office of Interdisciplinary Graduate Program's (OIGP) Spring Reception. Our reception will take place in-person this year on May 4th, 2022 from 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. in the North & South Ballrooms in Purdue Memorial Union.

To be eligible to participate in the Spring Reception, all applicants must be enrolled in a graduate program at the Purdue University West Lafayette Campus.

Please complete a Poster Submission Form by the deadline of Monday, February 28th, 2022. Your poster does not have to be completed in order to submit the application. You may choose to submit research you have previously presented at another event if you have made noticeable progress with your work since the last time you presented it.

You may present either a poster board or digital presentation. You may also submit an application for a group presentation. All submissions will be reviewed by a panel of faculty and administrative judges.

Along with applying to present a poster, you may also choose to apply for the Most Outstanding Interdisciplinary Project Award (MOIPA). There are also two awards for which you automatically qualify: the Audience Choice Award and the Certificate of Excellence Award.

Most Outstanding Interdisciplinary Project Award (MOIPA)

Please consider applying for the Most Outstanding Interdisciplinary Project Award (MOIPA). The MOIPA is an award given to a student whose research is deemed, by a select faculty and administrative panel, to be particularly interdisciplinary, while making broader connections to the world. The winner will receive a monetary award of $1,000 and a plaque and will serve as the Keynote Speaker at the OIGP Spring Reception.

To apply for the MOIPA, fill out the MOIPA Application Form.

In order to apply for the MOIPA, you must also submit a Poster Presentation Form.

Purdue Interdisciplinary Audience Choice Award

The Purdue Interdisciplinary Audience Choice Award is a crowd preference award determined by the attendees of the OIGP Spring Reception. The award consists of a certificate and a $100 prize.

Certificates of Excellence in Research

All presentations are automatically entered for the Certificate of Excellence award in their area, which recognizes the best interdisciplinary presentation for their particular Interdisciplinary Graduate Program.

Winners of the Certificate of Excellence award will receive a Certificate to honor their achievement. Certificates could be awarded to graduate students in each interdisciplinary area.
