Psychology Student Research Conference


Bellevue College Cafeteria, Bellevue, WA

Due to the growing concerns around COVID-19, including travel restrictions for university faculty and guests, we’ve made the difficult decision to postpone the Psychology Student Research Conference. We believe that this is the right decision for our community as we aim to prioritize the health and safety of everyone who supports, and participates in this event.

The Psychology Students Research Conference is a unique opportunity to get people energized for the future possibilities and to network with psychology students and faculty from colleges all over Washington state. With this in mind, we plan to offer the conference either in the fall or spring of the 2020 – 2021 school year.


We welcome undergraduate and graduate student posters about any and all psychology topics. Applicants must be endorsed by their advisor. Proposals and research in progress are acceptable for consideration. Abstracts will be reviewed as they are received and acceptance information communicated shortly after.

Poster Abstract

The portal for submitting poster abstracts is now closed.

Abstracts should be 200-250 words long.

Please note: All material must be entered and submitted in one sitting. This form does NOT allow applicants to save their progress. As a result, we ask that applicants draft and save the abstract outside of this form.

The Psychology Student Research Conference is hosted by the Eastern Washington University Department of Psychology at Bellevue, in partnership with Bellevue College Psychology.
