A Special Prize for Students Participating in GW Research Days

Research Days invites GW undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral students to showcase their work and compete for prize money. This annual event is dedicated to highlighting the breadth of research and discovery on issues of major disciplinary, multidisciplinary, and global significance being done at GW through poster sessions, presentations, guest speakers.

The Honey W. Nashman Center for Civic Engagement and Public Service sponsors a special prize at this event for community-based participatory research (CBPR) projects. CBPR is inquiry that is aimed at informing solutions to benefit the community, through collaboration with community members in all stages of the process: determining the research question and inquiry method(s), data collection, and dissemination of findings. 

Undergraduate and graduate students are eligible for this prize. Two winners will be chosen: First prize ($300) and second prize ($200).
