Welcome to the 15th Annual Student Showcase!

The Student Showcase is a yearly event that celebrates the creativity, research, innovation, entrepreneurship, and artistic performance of CMU/CMU Tech students from all of our campuses at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. The 2024 Student Showcase will occur on Friday, April 26th on the main campus of CMU in Grand Junction, Colorado. The event is open to the public.

Everything you need to complete your application can be found on the How to Apply tab in the navigation bar to the left.

The Showcase application is available as an app in every student's MAVzone portal starting in January of each year. The app allows students to access the electronic submission process.

Because every project must have a faculty sponsor, a faculty member (preferably the faculty mentor for the project) is named as a sponsor on each application. The sponsor is responsible for advising his/her students on how to design and present the projects that they are sponsoring. They also proof the abstracts before they are submitted as part of the application process. Students may have more than one faculty sponsor if appropriate.

  • All current CMU, CMU Tech, and CMU Montrose students, both undergraduate and graduate levels.
  • Students who are currently working on an original project, or completed an original project since Spring semester 2023.
  • Students who collaborated on a project with their peers and/or a faculty member.

Attendees and participants of the Student Showcase can park in the following areas:

  • University Center (UC) Parking Garage (CP11, P1)
  • The Parking Area west of the Art Building (CP9)
  • Maverick Center (MC) Parking Garage
  • Health Science (HS) Parking Lots (M16 and M26)
  • Any of the Pay to Park lots (P2, P3, P4, P5, P6)

Guests parking in these areas will NOT be ticketed on the day of this year's Showcase, April 26th, 2024. Use the View Map button above (COMING SOON) to access a map of Showcase venues and guest parking areas.

Applications are due March 6th!

Please remember, only complete applications will be reviewed for acceptance. The earlier you submit your application, the more time you will have to make necessary edits.
