Call for Undergraduate Research Poster Proposals

MPSA is now accepting proposals for Undergraduate Research Posters (Section 69) through December 5, 2014.

The Undergraduate Research Poster format (Section 69) is a particularly effective way to present quantitative research and is a perfect way to network with colleagues. (Academic advisors: This is also a great way to expose your students to the idea of graduate school in the social sciences.) Poster sessions are scheduled in the exhibit hall where conference attendees can view poster displays throughout the day and interact casually with presenters. We have had more than 200 scholars offer to serve as discussants, so we anticipate great feedback. The deadline to submit poster proposals isDecember 5, 2014. Additional information on MPSA poster sessions and a brief video on how to give an effective poster presentation can be found at:

Remember: Students do not need to be a member of MPSA member to submit a proposal. A significantly reduced registration rate (just $45) is available for undergraduates attending the conference. MPSA is also offering dozens of roundtables on topics of interest to students considering grad school, including topics such as job placement, teaching and what to expect at your first job.

*** QUESTIONS? Questions about the content of proposals should be directed to the appropriate section chair. Questions about policies, presentation formats, and the electronic submissions process should be directed to MPSA staff at
