Undergraduate Research Conference (URC)



Two of UC San Diego’s signature annual research conferences—the Undergraduate Research Conference and the Faculty Mentor Program Symposium—will be replaced this year by the Online Undergraduate Research Symposium (OURS), which is open to a more inclusive group of students with research experience. Read below to find out about significant changes to the registration and application process.


The Undergraduate Research Conference recognizes outstanding scholarly work produced by UC San Diego undergraduates and encourages additional interaction between students and faculty at the research level. Our hope is that the research and conference experience will encourage more undergraduates to pursue doctoral degrees and careers in research and college teaching. 

OURS 2020

The Online Undergraduate Research Symposium (OURS) will be taking place May 28th 2020. Faculty nominations are not required; students may register and submit their presentations.
