Research and Scholarship Showcase

Graduate Student Organization

The Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development Graduate Student Organization (GSO), the Office of Research, and the Office of Student Affairs are enthusiastic sponsors of the Research and Scholarship Showcase. The 11th Annual Showcase will take place on Wednesday, April 19, 2023, at 10:00 am.

Please join us to witness the wide range of research being conducted by students (from all degree levels) at Steinhardt. There will be oral presentations and poster presentations with an optional multimedia component. 

Come to cheer on a classmate, learn more, and witness #Steinhardt Scholars in action! Please submit your application to participate in the 11th Annual Research and Scholarship Showcase by Friday, March 3, 2023.


Presentations will be judged by Steinhardt faculty members. One cash prize will be awarded in each category to the best research as chosen by our judges. 

Oral Presentations: One winner will be selected for best oral presentation/research.

Poster Presentations: One winner will be selected for each academic career level (Undergraduate, Master, and Doctoral) for best poster presentation/research.

Diversity, Equity, and Belonging: One prize will be awarded to the poster presentation that embodies Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion values ad highlights marginalized communities and identities through exemplary research. Undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral are all eligible.

Oral Presentations 

Oral presentations will be five minutes in length (5 minutes/5 Slides). Questions and answers should be tabled until the end of each presentation and held for 3 minutes. Your presentation should include a brief synopsis of your research question, how you answered that question, and the results.

Poster Presentations 

Poster presentations will be uploaded to a Google Site, powered by GSO. Chosen participants will be asked to use a template for Google Sites to create their own. If you need instructions on how to create a Google Site, the NYU University IT department has a support page here

Poster guidelines are as follows:

  • Please reference the Digital Accessibility Checklist from NYU to ensure that your website is accommodating to all. 
  • 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 want to 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.

Poster Presentations with a Multimedia Component

This type of presentation is new to the showcase. You must 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. You will also be judged in a separate category from the poster sessions.
