SURSCA Research Symposium

The Society for Undergraduate Research, Scholarly and Creative Activities (SURSCA) is a campus organization that facilitates the research culture and encourages the professional success and opportunities gained by partaking in academic pursuits to be shared campus wide. The Wisconsin State SURSCA undergraduate research symposium is held in April of each year.

Posters in the Rotunda

UW System will celebrate its annual Posters in the Rotunda: A Celebration of Undergraduate Research at the State Capitol in Madison in late April. Posters in the Rotunda focuses on students and faculty advisors, and the incredible breadth of undergraduate research taking place on UW System campuses. Students submit a 50-word abstract for review, only selected students can participate. Details of Posters in the Rotunda can be found at: http://www.wisconsin.edu/posters/.

UW-System Undergraduate Research Symposium

The UW System Symposium for Undergraduate Research and Creative Activity is held each year in April. At this annual event, University of Wisconsin undergraduate students join their peers from two- and four-year campuses for an opportunity to share research projects to a statewide audience. The students present across the academic disciplines on a wide variety of topics from scientific research to artistic expressions. To become a Symposium presenter, undergraduate students need to register and submit an abstract in early February and a home campus approval process is used to select participants.


The National Conferences on Undergraduate Research (NCUR) promotes undergraduate research, scholarship, and creative activity in all fields of study by sponsoring an annual conference for students. Unlike meetings of academic professional organizations, this gathering of young scholars welcomes presenters from all institutions of higher learning and from all corners of the academic curriculum. Through this annual conference, NCUR creates a unique environment for the celebration and promotion of undergraduate student achievement, provides models of exemplary research and scholarship, and helps to improve the state of undergraduate education. The NCUR conference is typically held in March or April. Details can be found at: http://www.ncur.org/.
