The annual CURO Symposium highlights excellence in undergraduate research at the University of Georgia by offering an opportunity for students to communicate their research to the broader community.

All undergraduates pursuing faculty-mentored research may apply to present their research at the CURO Symposium. We welcome presentations in all disciplines, from undergraduates in their first years to their last years, who have a lot or just a little experience, whether their status is Honors or non-Honors, and whether or not they have been enrolled in CURO coursework.

We also encourage students to present projects at all stages of completion, from proposal, to in-progress, to finished product.

The 2024 CURO Symposium will be held April 8-9, 2024, at the Classic Center in Athens, Georgia.

Presentations are either a poster or a 10-minute oral presentation. The poster session for all poster presentations will be Monday, April 8, from 4-6 p.m. Oral presentations occur Monday, April 8, and Tuesday, April 9.
