WHAT IS THE UNDERGRADUATE RESEARCH CONFERENCE? Few university experiences offer a richer education than standing shoulder-to-shoulder with scholars and researchers working on society’s most important questions and challenges. From cancer prevention to choreography, substance abuse to alternative energy, financial planning to art history, Boise State undergraduates in all fields of study have a unique opportunity to explore and research issues that relate locally, nationally and around the world. Individually or as part of a team, they hone problem solving and critical thinking skills that will serve them for a lifetime, no matter the direction their career paths follow. The annual conference is a forum for undergraduate students from all academic disciplines to demonstrate what they have learned through their research, scholarship, or the arts. Students may present their work in poster, podium presentation, or visual formats.

WHO MAY PARTICIPATE? Any undergraduate student may participate in the conference provided they have a Boise State faculty sponsor and their project abstract is approved.
