Can I mention my scholarship on an academic poster?


User: Nesrine87 - 19 January 2016 17:18

Hi everyone,

I'm creating an A1 poster for a conference, and I was wondering whether I should/could note my scholarship, or if it sounds weird/pompous. Something like:

Name
The rich-person-who-donated-money scholar
PhD candidate, University
Email address

Is that weird? I'm funded by my uni, not an external body and it seems odd to have a separate section where all I say is "Cheers for the funding, University" since I can't thank the actual donor.

Usually you would have a separate section for funding, even with only one sponsor and even if that is your university.

Your contact details would usually be another separate section.

Okay, thanks for the clarification! I thought that might be the case.

Don't waste space on it, people who are viewing your poster are interested in your research, not who funds it. I imagine you can add to the programme it if you're required to submit an abstract.

Sometimes it's a requirement of the funder that their logo is on your poster

The OP didn't mention a logo, I was referring to the sentences that they were asking about.

User: TreeofLife - 29 January 2016 07:26

Yes, in many cases, the logo is all the acknowledgement of sponsorship that is on the poster.
