2018 UCLA Psychology Undergraduate Research Conference

It is with great excitement that I am writing to you announcing the upcoming date for the 2018 UCLA Psychology Undergraduate Research Conference (PURC).  The conference will be on Friday, May 4th, 2018 at UCLA and will showcase approximately 150 undergraduate psychology research projects in poster and paper talk sessions.

We are looking for a diverse representation of campuses and for high-quality abstracts written by undergraduate researchers in your department. Please encourage your strongest undergraduate researchers to apply. Applications will open, Wednesday, January 17, 2018 and students must submit the application and fees online by Thursday, March 1st, 2018 at 5:00 pm. The application and details are available at www.psych.ucla.edu/undergraduate/purc.

If you are hesitant about sending this to your students because of the distance, or because of the date, keep in mind that many of your undergraduates may call Southern California home, and others would love to travel to a conference city where the beaches are warm and sunny—especially if they are at the end of their own academic year.

If you have questions, please feel free to contact me at purc@psych.ucla.edu.
