Student Research Day Poster Presentations


Did you hear the buzz?

On April 10 the UFV Research Office hosted its annual Student Research Day Poster Presentations providing undergraduate students with the opportunity to share their research.

More than 30 students took this chance to talk one-on-one with faculty and students about their exciting research projects!

In addition to showcasing the hard work of students spanning a cross-section of disciplines, participants also competed for scholarship awards between $150-200.

Engagement in research and events such as this can help students obtain scholarships, awards, and graduate school positions. Student research contributes to UFV's strategic goals of providing "the best undergraduate education in Canada."
