Graduate Research Conference
Welcome to the Graduate School Research Conference
The University of New Hampshire would like to invite you to the Annual Graduate Research Conference (GRC). The GRC is an opportunity for students, faculty members, and the UNH community to learn about research from different colleges and departments and develop new ideas across disciplines. All events are free and open to the public. Over the past few years, the GRC has grown into a significant campus event. There are more than 120 Graduate and Ph.D. students eager to share their research with the UNH community.
Join us to learn about everything from the effect of feeding frequency on an invasive sea anemone to the preparation of semiconducting nanoparticles to taverns and their roles in 18th Century New Hampshire society. Come experience the fruits of your fellow student's hard work and gain valuable insights into conducting effective research.
Who Presents at the GRC?
The GRC is open to any graduate student at the University of New Hampshire who would like to present research in either poster or oral form. Special considerations are made for those students who have received travel grants from the UNH Graduate School for the same year as the GRC. These students are required to present their research in some form during the GRC.
Students are encouraged to inquire with their department or college regarding other talks, seminars, presentations, or colloquia that may be planned in conjunction with the GRC. If a department would like to schedule an event to coincide with the GRC, we encourage them to contact us. To learn more about graduate research check out our Explore UNH page.
