The CURO Symposium, an annual research symposium at the University of Georgia, provides an opportunity for all undergraduate researchers at various stages of the research process to present their research to the university’s academic community. The Symposium features concurrent Oral Sessions and a Poster session. Students may present in either format.


The Symposium:

  • highlights excellence in research by undergraduate students
  • provides a forum for undergraduates to disseminate their research findings and creative works
  • allows undergraduate researchers at UGA to engage, cooperate and communicate with their peers and university faculty and administrators



CURO welcomes submissions from all UGA undergraduates pursuing research from all disciplines. Undergraduate researchers at various stages of the research process are encouraged to submit abstracts.


Application Process and Deadlines:

Please review the current Symposium Call for Abstracts for details.
