Learning Abroad Fair Research Poster Session

The research poster session gives students an opportunity to share the scholarly work created during their Learning Abroad programs with the University community at the annual Global U Expo in the fall semester and the  Learning Abroad Fair in the spring semester. The poster session will be open to all undergraduate and graduate students who participated in an approved Learning Abroad program.

Learning Abroad welcomes proposals for any type of research and creative works. The definition of research varies by field of study.  A faculty member can help determine which elements of a Learning Abroad program would be considered research. 

Please refer to the Learning Abroad Research Poster Session Guidelines  for more information on eligibility, deadlines, and submission form.  Please contact Learning Abroad with any questions.


Many students who have returned from studying abroad find the next step is to research abroad. Through the Fulbright Program, there are opportunities to conduct research abroad, to serve as a teaching assistant, to continue studying a second language, to travel and produce digital storytelling pieces, and more. Check out the programs available to students and the latest Fulbright news at the University of Utah! 

Throughout the year, the University of Utah's Fulbright Representative, Prof. Howard Lehman, offers info sessions to advise students on the process. Keep an eye out for these info sessions in Learning Abroad’s Upcoming Events

Perhaps on your learning abroad program, you developed an interest in a topic and, having returned to campus, would like to research this topic more deeply. The University of Utah offers opportunities for students to receive academic and financial support while conducting research.

The Undergraduate Research Opportunities Programs offers undergraduate students the opportunity to either assist a faculty member in a research project or to identify their own research project and be supervised by a faculty member throughout the process.
