[2] A poster session is an activity in a large open area where authors accompany their posters, which rest on an easel or tabletop (provided by us); audience members circulate around and authors usually explain their project and answer questions, but the whole project is described on the poster. It is not a classroom talk. A poster might be produced by a single author or a group of authors.

Scholarships and Awards Eligibility:

To be eligible for one of the available scholarships or awards, you must be a current student at MCC (fall 2016, Intersession, 2017, or spring 2017). If you would like to have your presentation or poster considered for a scholarship or other award, please check the box indicating your eligibility and choose a category within which your presentation or poster will be considered. Scholarships and awards will be competitive within categories, but not between categories. Note: We will require submission of a formal annotated bibliography two weeks prior to Scholars' Day for scholarship eligibility. We will send a reminder about this after the deadline of this call for participation.

Potential categories for scholarships and awards.[5] Select a disciplinary category and whether the presentation or poster should be judged individually or as a group effort (e.g., a panel of 3 individual presentations will probably prefer each presenter judged individually); group project members will share any scholarships or awards granted (see the scholarship page for details):

[5] Categories may be modified prior to judging, based on the numbers of applicants, to maximize competitive balance.
