Presenting Your Research
There are numerous opportunities for undergraduate students to present the results of their research and creative endeavors, including our own annual Summer Research Conference. The Undergraduate Research Center also provides support for students to present at professional conferences with the ASP Conference travel funds.

Where to present? In addition to presenting at Oxy's End of Summer conference, we recommend you also consider presenting your work at SCCUR or NCUR!:
The Southern California Conference for Undergraduate Research (SCCUR) is an undergraduate research conference that takes place each November at a college or university in the Los Angeles area. Occidental traditionally has one of the largest contingents of student-presenters at this day-long conference.
The 24th annual SCCUR conference will take place on November 12th at UC Riverside.
The URC will cover the registration fees (early bird registration only) for both students and attending faculty. We are currently in the process of setting up a registration code so do not register until we send out that code. Please remember that the URC will not reimburse you if you pay out of pocket.
There is no ASP Conference Travel application required, just use the code to receive funding. Visit the SCCUR website for abstract submission, registration and event info.
- Abstract Submission Open: September 15 - October 21, 2016
- Registration Opens: October 1 - November 1, 2016
The National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR) is a research association established in 1987. A conference is held each spring to present and support undergraduate research nationwide. The URC will provide partial funding to attend the conference. Visit the NCUR homepage for updates, photographs and other information.
The 31st annual NCUR will take place on April 5-8, 2017 at University of Memphis!
When creating an account for abstract submission and registration, do not forget to list the URC e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) under "Additional Sponsor Email", so that we are notified about your submission and acceptance.
