Each year, The Office of International Education announces a call for submissions for the International Research Poster Session. Held in conjunction with the Forward Thinking Poster Session and Colloquy sponsored by ORSP, this event is held annually in the fall.
Along with supporting promising international research, the overall aim of the poster session is to encourage and showcase international research among faculty members from all disciplines. Two projects presented at the poster session are awarded a $1,500 Marquette International Research Award by a peer review panel.
