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 the excellent work of our undergraduates, URSCA allows students to benefit from the mentorship of A&S faculty mentors, gain experience presenting, compete for cash prizes, and network with their peer student presenters and attendees.

The 2018 URSCA Summit will be held Wednesday, April 13 in Moody Music Hall. Students may present their work as a poster or an oral presentation. The College will pay for posters to be printed provided they are submitted to University Printing by Friday, April 6.

Attendance is open to the public, and all presentations will be by UA students (from any division) with A&S faculty mentors.
