The mission of the Utah Conference for Undergraduate Research (UCUR), www.ucur.org, is to promote undergraduate research, scholarship, and creative activity, done with the mentorship of a faculty member or others, through an annual conference. Undergraduate research has been demonstrated as one of the truly high-impact educational practices. Student presentations are welcome in all fields and disciplines from the creative and performing arts to biomedical, engineering, and social science research.
Applications from undergraduate students in all disciplines are invited to present
in oral sessions, posters, artistic performances and visual art exhibits. Faculty
mentors are invited and encouraged to attend.
The Office of Engaged Learning has limited funding available for student registration
and travel costs whose proposals are submitted and accepted by the Scholarly and Creative
Activities Council. Abstracts and the necessary application form must be submitted
by the application deadline. If your abstract is approved for funding, you will be
notified via email.
