You’ve finished your research (or almost)—now what? The Office of Undergraduate Research can help you get your research out there.
Present Your Research
We sponsor the Undergraduate Research Symposium in the fall and spring, giving students the opportunity to showcase their research in a supportive, multi-disciplinary setting. If you are interested in presenting your work at a conference in your discipline, you may apply for funding with a Conference Travel Award. Whenever you need help condensing your research into an abstract, an article or a poster, the OUR can help.
Publish Your Research
As part of its mission to present undergraduate research to a wider audience, the Office of Undergraduate Research encourages and facilitates the publication of student research. For nearly twenty years, the OUR published two journals:
- Washington University Undergraduate Research Digest (WUURD)
WUURD, a scholarly journal published annually, comprised of peer-reviewed, full-length student feature articles alongside a compilation of student research abstracts from the most recent Undergraduate Research Symposia. Find past editions here.
- Washington University Senior Honors Thesis Abstracts (WUSHTA)
WUSHTA, published annually each spring, highlights the work of graduating seniors receiving academic honors for their work, including honors theses and capstone research projects. Find past editions here.
Following its relaunch in Fall 2022, the OUR is collaborating with campus partners to establish a new vision for supporting undergraduate research, including research dissemination strategies.
