The Black Doctoral Network welcomes undergraduate scholars to participate in our Western Regional Conference, themed “Empowering Youth of Color Through Culturally Responsive Education.” If you have a research project you would like to present as a poster at a professional conference, the poster competition is a good opportunity for you to showcase your academic work and receive constructive feedback from scholars in a friendly and engaging environment.

Abstracts may be submitted by sophomores, juniors and seniors (as of Fall 2018) from all racial backgrounds and on any topic.

The abstract must be no more than 250 words in length. Include the title of the poster, issues you address in your work, your methods and theories, and results/conclusions of your research (if available).
