Upcoming Graduate Research Symposium

In response to COVID-19, all W&M events and gatherings in university facilities as well as university-sponsored events on and off campus have been suspended.

Therefore, the 19th Annual Graduate Research Symposium has been cancelled. 

We thank everyone who intended to participate and those involved in the planning of the event for their time and energy. We'll look forward to next year's GRS.

In the meantime, we have built an online platform where presenters can share their intended research. Explore Virtual GRS 2020 to see the presenters' great work!

William & Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia invites interested scholars to present at the Nineteenth Annual Graduate Research Symposium (GRS) to be held at the Sadler Center on March 20-21, 2020. A distinctive educational and networking event, the GRS encourages interdisciplinary exchange, bringing together students from the sciences and the humanities at William & Mary and other surrounding regional universities. The GRS promises to be an exciting opportunity to share experiences common to students in all graduate school communities. Check out our past symposia programs to get a sense of the event.
