Happy Birthday to CUR!

This fall, the Center for Undergraduate Research is celebrating 10 years of excellence and creativity in undergraduate research at the University of Florida. 

Starting this week, join us online for our birthday celebrations! Leave us your warm wishes by signing our virtual birthday card and reading what alumni, students and faculty have already shared. We’re also recognizing our Champions of CUR below – without them, undergraduate research at UF would not be possible! Check out our spotlight articles below to hear from current student researchers or catch up with our alumni who are studying and working all across the nation.

Test your CUR knowledge by following us on Facebook and entering our daily trivia game, coming November 2-6. Keep the party going by cheering on our undergraduate researchers at our 2020 Fall Undergraduate Symposium on November 5. Submissions to present are open now until October 30.
