About the Showcase

The Bioethics Research Showcase is an annual juried exhibition of student work in a variety of categories and disciplines, reflecting the intersection of the many topics in the ethics of health, the environment, and emerging technologies that comprise the field of bioethics.

Hosted and sponsored by the Kennedy Institute of Ethics at Georgetown University, and launched in 2014 with the generous support of a grant from the Mary Elizabeth Groff Surgical Medical Research and Education Charitable Trust, the Showcase brings together faculty and students from across campus to nurture and celebrate undergraduate research in many disciplines.

Submission categories include:

  • Academic Paper
  • Poster Presentation
  • Policy Proposal
  • Business Plan
  • Journalistic Reporting
  • Multimedia + Performing Arts
  • Literary + Creative Writing
  • Rhetoric + Argumentation

Submissions are judged by an interdisciplinary panel of judges drawn from across the Georgetown community, and judged on the basis of originality, engagement, clarity and quality of presentation, and critical analysis and contextualization of the subject matter. Winning submissions are awarded cash prizes; all accepted submissions are featured in a two-day on-campus exhibition, and thereafter in a compiled online gallery.
