Undergraduate Research

Apply to URCA

Both individual and group projects that are mentored by a University of Alabama faculty member are invited for submission. Each project will be evaluated by faculty judges for the opportunity to be awarded the top project in their category, which also comes with a monetary award.

The Office for Undergraduate Research recognizes that some academic disciplines cannot properly present their research through a poster presentation. For academic disciplines for which this modality is not appropriate, OUR will make every attempt to provide other options for presentation at URCA.

Please contact urca@ua.edu if you have any questions.
