Six $1,000 prizes are up for grabs in the UNCG Graduate School’s 10th annual Showcase competition.

The UNCG Graduate School will host its 10th annual Graduate Research and Creativity Showcase: “Scholarship That Matters.”

This hybrid event will feature an online preliminary round, followed by an in-person final competition. Each of six winners in the finals earns a $1,000 prize.

Competitors create brief videos to communicate their research and creative work in jargon-free language and showcase their accomplishments to the Greater Greensboro community.

The Showcase is open to any currently enrolled UNCG graduate student engaged in original scholarship with a UNCG faculty member. 

Submissions are limited to one per student, regardless of their role in a project.

Creating these videos prepares students to deliver “elevator pitches” on their research. It can serve as an advertisement for students’ scholarship, either as a “video abstract” associated with an ETD submission in ProQuest or as a department or University outreach feature.
