The Graduate Exhibition

Graduate Exhibition - Canceled

Every year we look forward to celebrating graduate education during the Graduate Exhibition. However, given the growing concerns about the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), we've made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Graduate Exhibition, out of an abundance of caution.

This was a tough decision, but we take the health and safety of graduate students, faculty and community members seriously and do not want to put anyone's well-being at risk.

We know that many of you dedicated a lot of time and effort into preparing for the Exhibition, and we understand this is a disappointing situation and apologize for the inconvenience. If you have any questions, please contact

For video participants: If you’ve already submitted a video, we will contact you about posting the video on the Graduate School’s YouTube page, as this will still be an option.

This is a rapidly evolving situation, and we urge you to monitor Penn State’s Coronavirus Updates website for more information as it becomes available.

The Graduate School offers its sympathy, and our thoughts are with those of you, and those most important to you, including family members or friends, who have been affected by the COVID-19 outbreak.

The Graduate Exhibition includes musical performances, a visual arts display, poster exhibits with presentations by graduate students of their research, video submissions, and a new design option. All events are free and open to the public.

2017 Graduate Exhibition


The Graduate Exhibition celebrates research and creative scholarship, in all its aspects, as an essential and exciting part of graduate education at Penn State. Established in 1986, the Graduate Exhibition places special emphasis on communicating research and creative endeavor to a general audience and offers an unusual opportunity for professional development by challenging graduate students to present their work in clear, comprehensible terms to people outside their fields.

The Graduate Exhibition is also an opportunity for graduate students to see themselves as part of the larger University community, to share their scholarship, and to appreciate the breadth of quality research being done at Penn State.
