Symposium Judge Application:

The Graduate Student Symposium is being renamed in an effort by GSS to be more inclusive of scholarship in the humanities, the arts, and other academic areas not traditionally associated with "research." GSS aims to celebrate and display the scholarship and accomplishments of a vast array of graduate students through the newly renamed Graduate Student Symposium.
