Presenting undergraduate research at a conference off-campus is a great way to build one’s resume and professional network. This listing is not meant to be inclusive but it is representative of psychology students’ past experiences.
Some students have been supported by competitive travel awards sponsored by the Faculty for Undergraduate Neuroscience, the Council on Undergraduate Research, the College, or the Foundation.
