The Georgia Undergraduate Research Conference (GURC) strives to serve students and faculty in the Southeastern United States as the region’s premiere undergraduate research and creative endeavors conference. The once-yearly conference promotes the dissemination of original student scholarship conducted in partnership with a faculty/staff mentor. Further, GURC serves as a networking conference providing undergraduates with connections to career and graduate school opportunities.
GURC is hosted each year by a member of the Georgia Undergraduate Research Collective, an organization dedicated to promoting high-quality undergraduate student-faculty collaborative research and scholarship across the state of Georgia and the surrounding region. The Collective is pleased to be in its 9th year.
