Please see message below from Jennifer Hunter from Rice University regarding the 2018 Gulf Coast Undergraduate Research Symposium:

I am writing to let you know that Rice will host the 10th annual Gulf Coast Undergraduate Research Symposium (GCURS)! Undergrads conducting research in engineering and natural science fields are invited to apply to GCURS, which will be Saturday, October 6, 2018, on the Rice campus. We would love to host students from UCSD!

We’re not your usual poster session. In fact, no posters are allowed at GCURS! GCURS provides undergraduate researchers the opportunity to present original research discoveries to scholars from around the world. Participants give 12-to-15-minute individual presentations which include a question-and-answer period. Following the presentations, faculty mentors provide feedback to each student. Past participants have shared that GCURS helps to foster interdisciplinary, intercollegiate fellowship.

For a full list of participating divisions, details on how to apply, and more, students may visit gcurs.rice.eduHere is student perspective on the GCURS experience, and a flyer can be found here.
