Rubrics

In an effort to provide feedback to student presenters, each presenter will have two 'judges' view their poster during the online viewing period and rate the poster and presentation based on the judge rubric (PDF). We encourage you to utilize this rubric when preparing for the event.

Students who rank first, second or third in their respective award category receive a monetary award. Prizes will be in the following categories:

  • Social and Behavioral Sciences
  • Biological and Chemical Sciences
  • Environmental and Physical Sciences
  • Education
  • Humanities
  • Health and Human Services
  • Arts, Design and Performing Arts
  • Interdisciplinary Studies
  • Engineering
  • Math and Computational Sciences
  • Business and Entrepreneurship

Faculty Mentor of the Year

CURE participants have an opportunity to nominate their mentor for the Faculty Mentor of the Year award. Nominees are evaluated on their ability to foster student participation in research and artistry activities, the balance between advisee and nurturing critical thinking, and the ability to develop a mentoring relationship that exudes genuine care in the student and their learning.

Congratulations to the 2022 recipients:
