Help shape the next generation of scholars.

Faculty member discussing research presentation.RCIF would not be possible without faculty, staff, postdocs, and senior graduate students generously donating their time in support of undergraduate research.

Additionally, much of the success comes from the feedback provided to students as they seek to improve their projects and presentation skills.

UGR is asking those interested and available to complete a short form to help assist with overall planning.

Volunteer Opportunities


Evaluators are needed from all disciplines to provide our undergraduates with tangible feedback for both poster and oral research presentations. Guidelines and rubrics are provided by UGR; therefore, no prior experience is required! The purpose of the evaluations is to assess learning outcomes and not to determine the best presentation overall.
Volunteer Registration


With RCIF adding the oral presentation option, moderators are needed to assist with these sessions. Moderators will serve as the session "host" by introducing the students, evaluators, and facilitating the two-minute Q&A after each presentation.

Research Mentors

2019 RCIF MentorsUGR would first like to thank you for your commitment to students and research by sharing your expertise throughout the year!

RCIF is often the first-time students have formally presented their research; therefore, having research mentors attend is helpful. When not supporting your student(s), mentors are asked to assist additional undergraduate researchers formally by volunteering and/or informally by participating in the dialogue surrounding the other presentations.
