Undergraduate Research Presentation and Publication Opportunities

There are a number of opportunities for the presentation and/or publication of research and scholarly activities of undergraduate students. Some are specific to VCU, whereas others are regional or national. We also encourage you to talk with faculty in your department/school about opportunities for you to present at professional conferences.
