General Information

Additional UCSB Research Opportunities
UCSB offers a wide variety of research opportunities for undergraduates--from working in labs or libraries, to engaging in research studies or gaining direct experience in a particular field. The UCSB Undergraduate Research website contains a listing of such programs and opportunities. It also contains tips on finding the right project, features stories about UCSB undergraduates who have participated in research efforts, and is home to the UCSB Undergraduate Research Blog. Be sure to take advantage of this helpful resource!

Non-UCSB Research Opportunities
You can also use this page to explore research opportunities beyond UCSB. The Opportunities Alert page contains information about non-UCSB research and academic enrichment programs for undergraduates. Additionally, you are encouraged to learn more about The Southern California Conference for Undergraduate Research (SCCUR) by reviewing the SCCUR information on this page.

Opportunity Alert

This page provides undergraduates with a listing of non-UCSB research and academic enrichment programs that are available throughout the United States and elsewhere. It also has selected listings of undergraduate research conferences, travel and study abroad programs, and post-baccalaureate programs and fellowships.

The Opportunities Alert listing can be downloaded as a Word document or as a pdf file.

Southern California Conference for Undergraduate Research (SCCUR)

The Southern California Conference for Undergraduate Research (SCCUR) is a day-long interdisciplinary conference, at which undergraduates present their research, scholarship, and creative work in 15-minute oral presentations, research posters, and creative performances/exhibitions. Each year, a different institution hosts the conference, which draws over 500 undergraduate and faculty attendees from 80 to 100 different colleges and universities. The arts, sciences, humanities, and social sciences are among the represented disciplines.

Registration for SCCUR is open to all. Presentation is by invitation, following a process of abstract submission and review by local college and university faculty in the represented disciplines. Abstract submissions are accepted electronically via the conference web site (link below).

More information is forthcoming. Please visit http://sccur.org for the latest updates, or consult the SCCUR Facebook page, SCCUR-Southern California Conferences for Undergraduate Research.
