Southern California Conference on Undergraduate Research - SCCUR

The Southern California Conference on Undergraduate Research (SCCUR) is a one-day conference held each November on the campus of a college or university in the greater Los Angeles area. Its purpose is to provide a forum for the presentation and discussion of the best research, scholarship, and creative work of undergraduates in the region, and to encourage excellence in undergraduate achievement.

SCCUR is broadly multi-disciplinary including the sciences, humanities, social sciences, arts and performing arts. SCCUR draws over 500 participants, mainly undergraduates and their faculty mentors, administrators, and community college and high school students.

Students present their work either in 15-minute formal panel presentations chaired by faculty members, in poster form, or in performance. The conference seeks to replicate the conditions of professional and scholarly meetings, and many undergraduate scholars use SCCUR as a "first conference" experience, before going on to present their work at national professional meetings.

In addition to the program of student presentations, the conference includes a plenary session with a keynote address.

Students may be reimbursed for travel through applying to a URC-Sciences Travel Grant, review our travel grants link to find out more.

SCCUR 2017 will be held at Cal Poly Pomona on November 18, 2017.
