Conference and Publishing 

There are many discipline-specific professional meetings and conferences that invite students to share their work as posters or short presentations. If you think you are ready to share your work at a professional meeting or conference, talk to your mentor or a faculty in your department. And consider funding your experience with a student-travel grant.

The National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR) is one excellent opportunity for your to consider.  This conference is dedicated to promoting undergraduate research, scholarships, and creative activity in all fields of study. 

Additional conferences are listed as they are made available to the Undergraduate Research Program. Please note that the UGRP is not a sponsor of any of these conferences:

Additional information about various conferences can be found at:

Research results contribute to knowledge in a field when they are shared with other practitioners in the discipline. If you've made a significant contribution to an area of research, you may wish to collaborate on a peer-reviewed publication for a professional journal. Also, be sure to talk to your mentor or a faculty member in your department if you have questions about getting published. 

If you have had your work published or showcased in any venue, the UGRP would love to hear about it. Let us know at
