Showcase 2020 GPSA Research Exposition

GPSA Research Exposition

Poster session and scholarship competition for WSU Pullman graduate and professional students

2020 abstracts and awardees

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 event was held online.

What is the GPSA Research Exposition?

The Graduate and Professional Student Association (GPSA) Research Exposition is a poster session and scholarship competition. It allows you to present your original research, scholarship, and/or creative work to the University community while vying for $9,600 in scholarships.


GPSA Research Exposition welcomes participation of graduate/professional students of all disciplines who meet the following criteria:

  • Enrolled at WSU Pullman as a fee-paying graduate or professional student
  • Have completed all work at or for WSU (not in an external student internship)
  • Have not presented the same project at a previous WSU Academic Showcase or GPSA Research Exposition (formerly known as Wiley).
  • Original research, scholarship, or creative activity meets all eligibility requirements outlined in the abstract requirements.

You may present only one abstract as a primary or presenting author.

GPSA Research Exposition vs. Academic Showcase

If you are a WSU Pullman graduate or professional student, you are eligible to submit abstracts to BOTH Academic Showcase and GPSA Research Exposition. However, you may only present at one event. Since GPSA Research Exposition offers scholarships, it is typically the favored option.

If you are accepted to participate in GPSA Research Exposition, you will be removed from consideration for Academic Showcase. If you are not chosen to participate in GPSA Research Exposition, you may still be able to present your work at Academic Showcase.

To be considered for both events, you must submit an abstract to each by the deadline. Edit your abstract to adhere to each event’s submission guidelines and formatting requirements.
