Call for Submissions

We are no longer accepting submissions. The deadline was Feb. 10



The GRIND is now opening a call for submissions for entrants in our poster competition, doctoral presentations and 3-minute thesis competition.

Doctoral presentations

Doctoral presentations will be presented as panels of three to five students grouped according to discipline. Each doctoral student will have up to 20 minutes to present an overview of their proposed or finished research and allow for 5 minutes for questions and answers. Click below to submit to present a doctoral presentation.



Poster competition

The Poster Competition is open for Morgan State University graduate or undergraduate student to present results from projects that they have carried out as graduate and undergraduate researchers here at Morgan State University or during internships/co-ops. Students will be asked questions by judges about their research in a one-on-one exchange and their posters will be displayed for viewing by attendees of the conference. This is a great way to share your research that you’ve completed and begin to build your CV indicating your experience as a research presenter. Below are photos of our poster presenters from our conference last year. There will be multiple winners for this competition based on the following categories:

  • Peer’s Choice,
  • Interdisciplinary, and
  • Community-Based
