On Friday, April 12, Montana State University Billings will hold its sixth annual Research, Creativity & Community Involvement Conference.  Sponsored by the Office of Grants and Sponsored Programs, the University Honors Program, and Montana IDeA Networks of Biomedical Research (INBRE), the conference provides a great opportunity for undergraduate and graduate students of all majors to present their research and creative scholarship in a public forum. The conference is free and open to the public. All members of the MSUB campus community are encouraged to attend and participate.


The conference offers opportunities for MSUB and City College students of all majors to present their research and creative scholarship through oral presentations, posters, performances, and exhibits.


The conference is not a competition, but a celebration of the research and creative projects currently being carried out by MSUB students. The sponsors will review all submissions and offer assistance to interested students for their presentations and posters prior to the conference. Registration applications for the 2019 Conference are due April 1, 2019.
