By The Mercury

Thirty-three undergraduate and graduate students have earned honors for their research posters and presentations at the 18th annual K-State Research Forum.

The forum took place on March 27, and included oral presentations and poster presentations from more than 89 graduate students and 18 undergraduate students from across disciplines.

Research topics included engineering, math, physical sciences, agricultural sciences, biological sciences, social sciences, humanities and education, among other topics.

“We are proud of all students who participated in the forum and we appreciate them sharing their research, scholarly and creative activities with the K-State community,” said Carol Shanklin, dean of the Graduate School. “The students who were recognized demonstrated the excellence in research and scholarly achievements.”

The forum is sponsored by the Graduate School, the Graduate Student Council, and the offices of the president and provost.

This year, Dow AgroSciences sponsored scholarships for winners in the agricultural sciences oral and poster sessions. Jeffrey Rosichan, the company’s senior new technology leader, presented the scholarship awards to recognize student’s research achievements. After the awards ceremony, Rosichan led a networking session with students interested in careers in the agricultural sciences industry.

The university chapter of Sigma Xi, the scientific research association, sponsored a first-place award for the interdisciplinary oral session. Carolyn Ferguson, associate professor of biology and president of the university chapter, presented the scholarship award and invitation to the annual Sigma Xi award banquet on April 8.
