The Student Scholarship Expo is an annual celebration of Bradley students' research, scholarship and creative production. It features undergraduate and graduate students from all academic programs. Students present poster displays of their projects and share 5-10 minute presentations to a panel of volunteer judges from Bradley and the surrounding community. Judges evaluate students’ presentation skills, making note of how organized their poster is, how well they share their project to a generalized audience, and on their general public speaking and presentation skills. Awards are offered to the best poster presentations.
Why should students participate?
Students who have participated in past Expos have shared that they value (1) the chance to showcase their work to judges outside the familiar Bradley community; (2) the opportunity to hone presentation skills, particularly to a generalist audience; (3) the opportunity see what students are doing in other disciplines; and (4) the recognition of hard work in a university-wide event that includes the president, provost, college deans and leaders from local businesses and organizations.
