About Graduate Research Interaction Day
The University of Maryland Graduate Student Government hosts Graduate Research Interaction Day (GRID) each April. GRID provides an on-campus conference-style venue in which graduate students from all academic backgrounds can share their research, obtain valuable faculty and peer feedback, and hone their conference presentation skills within the comfort of their own campus environment. GRID fosters healthy competition among students by recognizing and awarding the best presentations from subject-themed oral and poster presentation sessions.
