Posters on the Hill
If you are an undergraduate doing cutting-edge research at KSU, consider submitting your work to Posters on the Hill. It is an extremely prestigious event in which undergraduates present their work as posters to members of Congress in Washington, D.C. each spring.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
- What is the likelihood of being accepted to present at Posters on the Hill? It is extremely competitive; over 90% of submissions are rejected each year. Although it is very competitive, you can’t get in if you don’t submit, so it’s worth it to go for it!
- Where and when is the event held? Posters on the Hill is held every spring at the Capitol in Washington D.C. The actual date is announced closer to the event (it depends on when members of Congress are available). Due to the pandemic, it has been virtual for the last few years; decisions about future events will be made as the date gets closer.
- When are abstracts due? Abstracts are typically due in December, with the event held typically sometime in April. For more information click here.
- Will I get help with travel expenses if I am accepted to present? Yes! Because the event is so prestigious, any KSU student (and faculty mentor) who is accepted to present will be fully funded by the Office of Undergraduate Research. Because of budgetary issues, we must have all travel expenses paid before the end of the fiscal year (July 1) or you will forfeit the funding. Submit all of your reimbursement requests before the end of May to ensure that the paperwork is processed in time.
