Conference Awards


Posters and presentations are judged by IUP faculty, and results are compiled across entries within each college. The entry with the highest score is awarded the Dean’s Award, which is a cash prize. The second-highest scoring entry is awarded $500 in funding that may be used to travel to a conference or other scholarly event. Third and fourth prizes may also be awarded, with the prize varying from year to year. Here are the rubrics used by the 2015 judges for presentation and poster awards.

New this year, the Graduate Student Assembly will present a Peers Choice Award.

Here are the submission instructions for the 2015 Best Bibliography award.
