16th Annual Thomas Undergraduate Research and Creativity Expo
April 14, 2022
Any undergraduate student currently enrolled at UNCG who has participated in a research/creative scholarship project may apply. The research/creative scholarship project could be from course work, a project developed for independent research/study, participation in the Undergraduate Research and Creativity Award (URCA) or other projects with a faculty mentor, and/or volunteer work.
No, you may present if the project is incomplete. At minimum, you should be able to explain the overall question, discuss how the question will be answered, and report any preliminary results.
No. For example, sometimes UNCG students travel during the summer to complete research on other university campuses, federal laboratories or in the private sector. Students may present as long as there is a faculty sponsor listed on the presentation who agrees that the research is of high quality.
Yes. Designate one individual as the primary student on the project. The primary student should register as a presenter, and then complete the entries for each co-presenter on the project. The co-presenters are NOT required to submit separate abstracts. Each group should only submit one abstract.
Undergraduate students are the only presenters at this conference. They can present the work done in collaboration with faculty and/or graduate students and the faculty and grad students are encouraged to attend the conference to positively support the undergraduate presenters.
A committee will judge selected presentations and determine the top three for awards in each category (listed below). Your faculty mentor must approve your self nomination. Only those students who have completed EXCEPTIONAL work should submit for evaluation. If you wish to be considered, the URSCO will contact your mentor by February 20 for approval, which must be given by March 10. If your faculty mentor does not approve, you will not be eligible for consideration. *Students presenting more than one project may only be considered for one entry.
