SJSU and CSU Student Research Competition


The Office of Research in partnership with the Research Foundation provides undergraduate and graduate research students the opportunity to present their work and compete for selection as SJSU representatives at the annual CSU Student Research Competition.  Applications are made to the appropriate college and each college submits their selections to the Office of Research.  The research presented should be appropriate to the student's discipline and career goals.  Proprietary research is excluded.  Each college may send forward a total of four student projects (undergraduate and/or graduate) representing outstanding research or creative activity.  The form to apply for this competition will become available early in the Spring 2020 semester; in the meantime, learn more on the SJSU Student Research Competition webpage.
