PURA Dates

Each year there are two PURA award cycles based on the JHU academic calendar.  Cycle one will occur in the fall semester offering the student the opportunity to conduct the research from the spring semester immediately following the award through the spring semester of the following year. Cycle two will occur during the spring semester offering the student the opportunity to conduct the research from the summer session through the spring semester of the following year. Awardees from BOTH cycles are expected to be available to present their poster at the “Poster Session and Recognition Ceremony” held the 4th Tuesday in April of the following academic year.
