Students may submit entries for the SF State student research competition through Monday, February 10.

The competition take places February 24–28. As many as 10 winners will be selected to represent the University at the 28th annual CSU Student Research Competition to be held May 2–3, at California State University, East Bay.

The CSU systemwide competition provides an opportunity for both undergraduate and graduate students to present their outstanding research projects and creative works. Current students, as well as those who graduated in spring, summer or fall 2013, are eligible. SF State students have done very well in past competitions, including three first-place and three second-place winners last year. Within the College of Liberal and Creative Arts last year, Industrial Arts graduate student Todd Wilkinson won a first-place award at the CSU Research Competition for his project, “Reconnecting Manual Wheelchair Users with Nature.” Overall, SF State students took home three first-place and two second-place awards at the competition, the most in the 23-campus CSU system for the third year. Winners receive cash awards.

Participants will exhibit their work at SF State in the Graduate Research and Creative Works Showcase on April 24. Apply online for the Student Research Competition at the Division of Graduate Studies website.
