About the annual University of Chicago Undergraduate Research Symposium

Each year, the University of Chicago celebrates undergraduate research and creative inquiry by hosting the University of Chicago Undergraduate Research Symposium. Undergraduate researchers from across all disciplines and all years are invited to present their undergraduate research in poster or oral presentation sessions. Fine and performing artists are also invited to showcase their creative research through traditional conference formats, or in performance or exhibition spaces. We invite student presenters who have undertaken scholarly research at the University of Chicago or at other domestic or international universities, research institutes, museums or other collections. 

The University of Chicago Undergraduate Research Symposium also provides an opportunity for the university to acknowledge the significant contribution made to undergraduate education by our faculty and scholars who serve as research mentors.

The UChicago Undergraduate Research Symposium is a signature program of the College Center for Research and Fellowships (CCRF). It is supported by the College, the Collegiate Divisions, and the Office of Research. It is also supported by generous donors who contribute to the success of the event and support many of the undergraduate presenters by providing research grants managed by the CCRF.
