Presenting Your Research

Undergraduates participating in faculty-mentored research are strongly encouraged to share their work at poster sessions, academic conferences, and other events. Your academic department and/or faculty mentor can help you find opportunities to share your work; in addition, the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program also supports the presentation of undergraduate research through the following opportunities.

This poster session is offered in the fall, and again in the spring. UROP grant recipients such as Young Scholars, Collaborative Inquiry, and Community-Based Research grantees are required to share their work at one of these poster sessions. Other undergraduate researchers are also welcome to share their posters at this event. Learn more here.

The Minnesota Private College Council presents the "Private College Scholars Showcase" event at the State Capitol each year, and invites universities such as St. Thomas and other private universities in the state to come share their work. The University of St. Thomas is able to select 2-3 participants each year. Learn more here.

Conference Travel Grants provide undergraduate students with up to $750 in funding for travel-related expenses associated with presenting research at academic conferences. Learn more here.

And don't forget - if you are presenting research that you completed while a student, you may be eligible to apply for UROP's Conference Travel Grant.
