2022 Gulf Coast Undergraduate Research Symposium

DATE: Sat., Oct. 8 - Sun. Oct. 9, 2022
8 a.m. - 4 p.m.

The Gulf Coast Undergraduate Research Symposium (GCURS) is hosted annually by top-ranked Rice University. 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 camaraderie, it offers an introduction to Houston, the fourth-largest and most diverse city in the nation.

Rice is hosting the Gulf Coast Undergraduate Research Symposium (GCURS) for the 14th year in a row and would like to invite interested students to apply at gcursapply.rice.edu. This year, the symposium will be on Saturday, Oct. 8. 

GCURS provides undergraduate researchers the opportunity to present original research discoveries to scholars from around the world. Participants give 10-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. Here is a video overview of the symposium - it’s high-energy, exciting and students get a lot of value out of it.

Accommodations are provided to accepted participants traveling to Houston from outside the area, and limited travel awards are available. In addition, students are encouraged to explore funding opportunities from their home institution.

The application is now open and the deadline is Sept. 1.
