Student Research & Creative Scholarship Showcase

The Student Research & Creative Scholarship Showcase celebrates the excellent academic work of UAA's students across an interdisciplinary spectrum of arts and humanities, social sciences, business, health, education, applied sciences, engineering, and natural sciences. The 2023 Showcase is being held in-person, and students competing for prizes should prepare to present their project at the event. 

Students are asked to submit a 36"x24" conference poster showcasing the best of their academic work. Below you will find information on what we are asking students to include with their posters, the Submission Form, and numerous resources to help with creating effective and memorable conference posters! Please note: Group submissions are accepted - there is a spot on the submission form to indicate it is a group effort.

How to Submit Your Project Checklist:

  1. Download one of these Powerpoint Slide templates to create your poster:
    1. Horizontal (24" x 36") Template
    2. Vertical (36" x 24") Template
  2. Confirm with your project advisor or assignment's professor that:
    1. You are planning to submit to the accurate academic category. If you are unsure which category you should submit to, consult your project advisor or professor.
    2. You have chosen the appropriate rubric. Rubric categories include: Empirical Research, Non-Empirical Scholarship, Creative Activity. Selecting the appropriate rubric will ensure you receive the most fair and accurate evaluation for prize consideration. View the three Showcase rubrics.
  3. When you are ready, open the submission form, sign in with your UA username and password, and submit your project! 
  4. Prepare to present your poster in person. It's normal to be nervous before presenting an academic poster at an event! Take a look at our resources for students for help as you prepare to talk about your research to the judges on April 21.


  • You must save and submit your powerpoint file as a PDF - this will ensure the poster prints correctly.
  • Double-check that you are requesting the correct category and rubric. We cannot guarantee that projects evaluated incorrectly will be considered for prize placement.
