Present Your Research

Why Present Your Research?

Presenting your research at conferences challenges you to think reflectively about your work, to develop skills in communicating your research to others, to hear about other people’s work, to network with colleagues, and frankly, to build your resume.

As always, your mentors should know about conferences where you could apply to present, particularly within your academic field.  Yet there are also conferences that bring researchers together from different disciplines, like the ones mentioned below. In addition to the ones below, the Council on Undergraduate Research has an extensive list of presentation opportunities.

Remember, whether or not you are on a LUROP fellowship, you can apply for a LUROP Travel Award.

I intend to offer a workshop during the year about delivering presentations, and please contact me with any questions you have about applying for conferences or putting together a presentation.  You can reach me at awarne@luc.edu.
