What is the CUNY BA Student Showcase?

This event allows current CUNY BA students to showcase their work to the CUNY community. CUNY BA students explore a wide range of research interests, and together, their works represent a mosaic rarely found at the undergraduate level.

This event is also an essential professional development experience. Student presenters receive helpful support and practice sessions in preparation for the Showcase. The Showcase is a platform for students to share their work and offers a greater sense of community across the CUNY BA program.

Presenter FAQs

What type of project can I submit?

You can submit any project that you are working on—a research project, a performance piece, an art piece—as long as:

  • You are a current CUNY BA student,
  • The project is completed, or near completion, when you apply (so that it will be ready well enough in advance of the showcase),
  • You can present it at the showcase in a brief period (5-10 minutes), and
  • The project is supervised by a CUNY faculty member (not necessarily your CUNY BA mentor).

The format of your presentation can be tailored to your unique project as long as it can be presented briefly and online. Each presentation is followed by a few minutes of Q&A.

What is the deadline for applications to the Student Showcase, and who should I contact if I have questions?

The application period for the 2024 Student Showcase is now open! Submit your application by March 4, 2024!

Please email the CUNY BA Fellows at if you have questions about participating in the Showcase.

Where can I get support for my slides?

CUNY BA Fellows will work with all presenters to provide support and feedback on their slides. Presenters are encouraged to attend the Present Your Research (Public Speaking) Workshop on April 5, 2024, at 11AM.
Register to attend the virtual workshop through Zoom HERE [broken link]. Attendees will be oriented on conference-style presentations and public speaking techniques and revise their conference slides with the assistance of CUNY BA Fellows. Showcase presenters are highly encouraged to bring a draft of their presentation slides for review and feedback.

Who should I contact if I have questions?

Email the CUNY BA Fellows at with any questions or concerns regarding the Student Showcase. CUNY BA Fellows are available to assist you throughout the entire Showcase experience (e.g., help completing the application, creating slides, feedback on the presentation, etc.).
