A&S URSCA Summit

The A&S Summit for Undergraduate Research, Scholarship, and Creative Activity (URSCA) provides undergraduate students with an opportunity to highlight their research and creative activity. In addition to showcasing their work, URSCA allows students to benefit from A&S faculty mentorship, gain presentation experience, compete for cash prizes, and network with their peers.

2018 Summit

This year’s Summit will be held Friday, April 13 in Moody Music Building. Students from all divisions of the College—the humanities and fine arts, the natural sciences and mathematics, and the social sciences—will present their research and creative works as posters and oral presentations.

Attendance is open to all UA students and the public, but presenters will be UA students (from any program) that have A&S faculty mentors.
