Thanks to generous funding from Instructional Related Activities (IRA), University Foundation, and other sources, CI Student Research is able to provide financial support for students' research and creative activities.

Here are some of the current opportunities to support your research and creative endeavors:

2022 SCCUR Opportunity - Saturday, November 19

The 2022 Southern California Conference for Undergraduate Research (SCCUR) conference will be held in-person at Pepperdine University in Malibu, CA on  Saturday, November 19, 2022. 

Thanks to support from Instructionally Related Activities (IRA), CI Student Research will cover registration costs and provide bus transportation for a limited number presenting and non-presenting students. For non-presenting students, this would be a great way to see “student research in action” and connect with fellow undergraduates from across Southern California. We hope this conference will inspire you to engage in future student research opportunities.

CI Student Presenters and CI student non-presenters can sign up here to have CI Student Research cover registration costs and bus transportation: CI Student Sign Up for 2022 SCCUR - (please submit your interest form no later than Sunday, October 30, 2022)

For those wishing to present, project abstracts are due Sunday, October 2, 2022 by 11:59pm. You can submit your abstracts on the SCCUR website.
