Presenting Your Reseach

For UROP, URS and IRUOP students, presenting your research results is one of the requirements of your award.  There are a number of options for you to choose from including those listed below.  Sharing your work can help you expand your network of contacts who share your research interests. We recommend discussing your research presentation with your faculty research mentor and academic advisor. They can help match your interests with the appropriate venue.
