The Department of Kinesiology Graduate Student Research Award is given annually to the student whose poster is rated highest by faculty and postdoctoral fellow judges.  Posters are judged on both research quality and the quality of the poster presentation.  Candidates for this award are drawn from among those students who present their research at the Penn State Graduate Exhibition, which is held annually in March.
