Conferences, Seminars

One huge benefit of working on a research project is being able to share your discoveries!  We encourage you to apply to both local and out of state conferences to present your project.  Funding may be available for UM students if their home department is providing funding.  UGR will match up to $250.00 of the home department's commitment.  Please complete the Office of Undergraduate Research (UGR) Travel Funding Request  form and drop it off at Ungar 103. If you have any questions, please email us at



UM undergrads are invited to present their research projects or attend the presentations.
