Collaborative Research Competition

Alpha Chi is a multidisciplinary honor society, and this annual competition is one way Alpha Chi fosters collaboration among student members from these different academic fields. Any chapter can put together a multidisciplinary team to do research around a common goal. The teams that competed in 2020 are posted here, and the teams for 2021 have already been identified.

$5,000 1st Place Prize
$2,500 2nd Place Prize

The theme of this year’s competition is “… and Justice for All.” 

Each team will identify a problem or formulate a hypothesis and conduct the necessary research. A research report of no more than 15 pages (not including title page and citations) will be submitted by March 22, 2021. The title page must identify each team member, their classification and discipline, as well as a research overview describing how the team planned, divided, and conducted its collaborative project. A multidisciplinary panel of judges will evaluate the research report, a 12-minute oral presentation with a 3-minute question and answer period during the 2021 convention, and a digital poster. Teams will have until March 22 to complete their work.
