Undergraduate students and their mentors are encouraged to plan to participate in this event on November 5-6, 2021 to be held at the University of West Georgia. Due to COVID-19, this may change to online. Watch for updates. This conference provides a great opportunity for students to share the value of their research. The conference is a safe environment in which constructive criticism is given in a spirit of providing students with an opportunity for academic and personal growth.

Mentored Undergraduate Research & Creative Endeavors (MURACE) provides travel support for this event for Georgia College & State University students (two per paper). Participation in this event does not negatively impact a GCSU student presenter's annual allowance for individual student research presentation travel funding from MURACE.

Transportation to the University of West Georgia for the conference will be reimbursed at State rates by MURACE for Georgia College & State University students accepted to present at the conference. Hotel rooms may be arranged and reimbursed by MURACE for students from Georgia College & State University who are accepted to present at the conference. GCSU students must apply through the MURACE Student Travel link on this website at least two weeks in advance of the conference. If the conference is moved to online, then only the registration fee will be reimbursed.
