The 16th Annual CFAES Undergraduate Research Forum

The College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences is calling for abstracts for the CFAES Undergraduate Research Forum, scheduled for Wednesday, March 6, 2019, from 1:00pm to 4:00pm, in the Nationwide and Ohio Farm Bureau 4-H Center.

The CFAES Undergraduate Research Forum provides a means for undergraduate students to share their research with members and friends of the OSU community; recognizes the significant contributions to research by OSU undergraduates; and facilitates exchange between students, faculty, and the public. Participation in this event will prepare students for the OSU Spring Undergraduate Research Festival.

Students enrolled in any undergraduate degree program in CFAES and the School of Environment and Natural Resources are invited to participate, provided they have a CGPA ≥ 2.5 and are engaged in supervised research projects in the area of their major. If a research project is ongoing and will not be completed by March 1, a research-in-progress summary may be submitted in lieu of an abstract.


  • All participants will be rewarded with a $50 gift card from Barnes & Noble!
  • Research that has been presented in another venue is welcome.
  • By submitting an abstract, the student agrees to present the research at the Forum.
  • Final presentations are in the form of poster presentations and will be judged by faculty.
