Graduate Research

Plan to attend the 14th Annual Graduate Research Forum on Friday, November 4, 2022.

The Graduate Research Forum (GRF) provides an opportunity for Miami graduate students from all departments to share their scholarly work with the university community. Students will participate in in-person and online synchronous poster presentations, oral presentations, and art presentations. Presentations will be evaluated by alumni and faculty judges, and top presenters will receive awards of professional expense funds.

If you are alumni of the Graduate School and would like to serve as a GRF judge, please contact the Graduate School at (subject: GRF Volunteer Judge). We would love to have you!
