Undergraduate Poster Exhibition and Competition

The center’s first sponsored undergraduate poster exhibition on contemporary Chinese affairs happens on 22 April 2019. Students present research results from course papers, signature works, capstone projects, or other educational experiences. Cash prizes in the amounts of $100 for first place, $75 for second place, and $50 for third place are awarded to three posters that are particularly excellent in content, design, and oral presentation.

Why submit a poster?

The poster exhibition offers you opportunities to share your research product with your peers and professors at the university. It allows you to practice your skills in summarizing, advertising, and visual and oral presentation. It teaches you how to communicate your research with other scholars in a professional manner. It is also an opportunity to collect comments to strengthen your work. Not least of all, you may win a cash prize in recognition of your academic excellence.
Who is eligible to apply?

All Duke Kunshan University undergraduates are eligible to apply for the poster exhibition as long as the project has a substantial content related to contemporary China. You can either present one of your individual research products—based on a course paper, signature work, capstone project, or other educational experience. Alternatively, you can collaborate with others to present a group project.
How will my poster be evaluated?

A rotating panel of four Duke Kunshan University faculty members will serve as judges. They will evaluate posters on three dimensions: content, design, and oral presentation. A five-minute presentation that explains the background, research questions, methods, and findings, is needed for explaining your poster to the judges.
