The Celebration of Student Scholarship is an annual event held on the NMU campus to celebrate the scholarship and creativity of both undergraduate and graduate students in all disciplines. Students share their work with the NMU and Marquette communities by presenting posters or art installations, delivering oral presentations, and submitting essays.

All winners--Essay contest, Library/Archives Research Award, and poster winners--are featured in NMU Commons and recognized at the Celebration of Student Scholarship. This page also contains the contributions of Freshman Fellows and McNair Scholars who participated in the event. Those programs exist to give undergraduates research experience.

***Due to Covid, there were no Celebration award winners in 2020, and all entries were submitted as Voicethread media files.***
