Central California Research Symposium
The Central California Research Symposium takes place every spring on the campus of California State University, Fresno. The Symposium serves as a forum to share recent research with community investigators in various fields, college students, and faculty as well as to encourage research activities in the Central Valley. All fields of research are considered for presentation to exchange further ideas among investigators and the general public.
The CSU Student Research Competition is hosted by a different CSU campus each year. It is a statewide competition between all CSU campuses. Students who participate in the competition may receive cash awards.
