CSU Student Research Competition

The CSU Student Research Competition provides an opportunity for both graduate and undergraduate students to present their outstanding research projects and creative works in a formal academic competition. Students who are currently enrolled, as well as those who graduated in the spring, summer or fall semesters of 2016, are eligible.

The SF State level of the competition, scheduled for February 20 – 24, is an excellent way to gain experience presenting research at conferences and symposiums and would look great on your résumé or curriculum vitae. The University sends up to 10 campus winners to compete in the CSU-wide competition. The 31st annual California State University Student Research Competition takes place April 28 – 29 at California State University, San Luis Obispo.
