Penn State's annual Undergraduate Exhibition communicates and celebrates the participation of undergraduate students from across the University in research and creative endeavors. Undergraduate students from all Penn State campuses entered poster presentations to showcase their work to a general audience. The exhibition was open to the public.

Posters were entered in the arts and humanities, engineering, health and life sciences, physical sciences, public scholarship, and social and behavioral sciences or as course-based projects in any discipline. 

Monetary prizes are awarded to the top entries in each category.  The Gerald A. Hauser Award is given to the exhibition entry judged to be best overall.  Other awards include the Phi Kappa Phi Peter T. Luckie Award for Outstanding Research by a Junior and the University Libraries Award for Information Literacy.
