Applications Now Open for Gulf Coast Undergraduate Research Symposium

Sept. 2, 2018


On Saturday, October  6th, Rice University will host the 10th annual Gulf Coast Undergraduate Research Symposium (GCURS)! GCURS provides current undergraduates the opportunity to present their original research discoveries to scholars from around the world. Not only does GCURS foster interdisciplinary, intercollegiate comraderie, it offers an introduction to Houston, the fourth-largest and most diverse city in the nation!

GCURS is not your usual poster session. In fact, we do not allow posters! Participants present original research discoveries in 12-15 minute individual, oral presentations to scholars from around the world. Following the presentations, faculty mentors provide coaching to each student. Past participants have shared that GCURS helps to foster interdisciplinary, intercollegiate fellowship.
