Started in 2021, FURC is an official undergraduate research conference! This conference aims to provide thesis, directed studies, and other students, with the opportunity to present their research projects/honours thesis posters in a formal conference setting.


WHy should I participate?

By presenting your research project you will be able to add this experience to your Laurier Experience Record (LER) and curriculum vitae. You will be provided with an official, signed certificate to confirm that you have presented in a formal undergraduate research conference! This is also a great opportunity for students interested in learning more about the ongoing research at Laurier, and discussing possible research involvement with professors.
