Nearly 130 graduate and undergraduate students exhibited posters of their work at the 2019 SEAS Student R&D Showcase, held October 25 in the Science and Engineering Hall. The Showcase celebrates and highlights state-of-the-art research projects being conducted across the school, and includes collaborative work with faculty and students in other departments across the university, as well as with those at other universities in the U.S. and abroad.
Students competed for nearly $40,000 in prizes awarded to the best graduate poster, best undergraduate poster, and runner-up poster in each of the school’s six departments. See the complete list of Showcase winners.
Thirteen students also were awarded AccelerateGW I-Corps Site Program grants. The AccelerateGW program is funded by the National Science Foundation and managed by GW’s Office of Innovation and Entrepreneurship (OIE), and it provides grants of up to $3,000 to GW students, faculty, and staff who have great technology and want to explore the potential for commercializing it. Grant money awarded to the researchers is used to cover expenses that the innovators might incur as they interview potential customers for their technology.
This year’s competition also featured department seminars and tours of several labs in the Science and Engineering Hall.
