Undergraduate Research Exhibition
EFSC's Undergraduate Research Exhibition (URE) provides students from all majors, all academic disciplines, and all campuses an opportunity to showcase original research, scholarly projects, and creative works to the collegewide EFSC community during an on-campus event held each Fall and Spring Term, with the next event scheduled for Wednesday, April 24, 2024.
Who Can Submit Research?
All EFSC students who have worked on research projects in the past academic year are eligible to participate.
Why Should I Participate?
You can use this experience to share your research, build your professional portfolio, and enhance your presentation skills. In addition to presenting your research in person at the event, your abstract/artistic statement and poster will be included in the OUR's online Book of Abstracts (our online archive for exhibition abstracts and posters) for you to share with friends, family, schools you apply to, and future employers. View the Fall 2023 Book of Abstracts for an example.
What Types of Research are Accepted?
You're welcome to submit original research, scholarly projects, and/or creative works from any discipline. We accept research at any stage, from initial ideas to partially or fully completed projects. View examples of past research.
How Do I Sign Up?
The call for submissions is open now for the Spring 2024 Undergraduate Research Exhibition, which will take place on Wednesday, April 24th, from 11 AM to 1 PM at the Melbourne Campus Student Union in the Food Court area.
You will need to submit:
- Contact info for yourself, other researchers on your team, and your Research Mentor
- A project title
