Undergraduate, graduate and doctoral students are all eligible.

Oral Presentations 

Oral presentations should be at most five minutes in length. Questions and answers should be tabled until the end of each presentation. You can share your screen to show a PowerPoint (or similar visual) while you present. Your presentation should include a brief synopsis of your research question, how you answered that question, and your results.

Poster Presentations 

Poster presenters will create a Google Site where judges and the NYU community will be able to view their posters. Instructions on how to set up your Google Site can be accessed at and on the NYU IT Support Page

Poster guidelines are as follows:

  • Please reference the NYU Digital Accessibility Checklist to ensure that your Google Site is accessible.
  • A title, that includes the name of the author(s), with a font size of at least 24 pts. 
  • An abstract of your research, a brief synopsis of your research question, how you answered that question, and the results. 
  • Ensure that all images and videos are properly attributed.

Below are additional suggested sections that you may include on your poster: 

  • Abstract
  • Methods
  • Results or findings 
  • Discussion
  • Acknowledgments (Optional)

Please work with your mentor or adviser on the creation of your poster.

Optional Multimedia Component

You may include a multimedia supplement to your application, but it does not have to be a video. This is a space for you to creatively represent your research and disseminate your findings in non-traditional ways, if you desire.
