Annual Graduate Research Conference (GRC)

Graduate Research Conference

2021 Graduate Research Conference: April 19 & 20

UNH invites you to attend or participate in the virtual 2021 Graduate Research Conference (GRC). The GRC is an annual showcase in which over 200 UNH graduate students from all academic disciplines present their work and research over the course of two days. Whether you're a participant or an attendee, the environment is electric and you'll almost certainly learn something new.


The GRC is open to any graduate student at UNH who would like to present research in either poster or oral form.

Schedules and Presentations

The 2021 GRC registration deadline is April 10th. There are two types of presentations at the conference: oral presentations and poster presentations. Day one (April 19) is for poster presentations. On day two (April 20), participants will present their research in oral presentations.  If you have any questions about the presentations or registration, please contact the Graduate School Dean's office.

Leitzel Center Awards

The UNH Joan and James Leitzel Center for Mathematics, Science and Engineering Education are specific awards presented each year at the GRC. The awards recognize exemplary STEM education and outreach presented at the GRC. The Leitzel Center will make two awards - one for an oral presentation and one for a poster presentation. Awards selection is based on the presenter’s demonstration of a significant contribution in at least one of two key areas:

  1. Graduate student contributions made in the design and implementation of STEM education research projects, which advance our understanding of STEM education.
  2. Graduate student contributions made in the design and implementation of STEM education outreach projects, which directly impact STEM teachers, instructors and faculty or STEM students of all ages through the application of enhanced STEM content or pedagogies.

Each Award is worth $500 to the winners. Questions about the Center and eligibility for these awards can be directed to Steve Hale. If you're interested in being considered for an award and meet the eligibility requirements, please indicate so in the appropriate field on the GRC registration form when registering for the conference.
