FURC 2021 Workshop Proposal
FURC Workshop Proposal
The 2021 Florida Undergraduate Research Conference (FURC) organizers invite faculty and staff to submit abstracts for workshop presentations during the event on Friday or Saturday. Workshop presentations are 45 minutes long, and in the past have covered topics such as graduate school application tips, how to get more out of your research, funding/applying for fellowships, and more. Other areas of interest include pivoting research during COVID, self-care during quarantine, leveraging your research experience on your resume, and we are open to other applicable topics of your choosing. We encourage proposals that are applicable to students from all majors. There will be two workshops sessions and workshops may run once or twice based on the number of proposals received.

The Florida Undergraduate Research Association and Florida State University are so excited to be hosting FURC 2021, this time in a virtual format. FURC is one of the nation's largest multi-disciplinary research conferences, and it is open to all undergraduate researchers in the state of Florida to present their research in a poster format. In addition to relevant conference presentation experience, FURC boasts some of the best networking opportunities with fellow researchers and graduate programs across the country, as well as workshops and other professional development experiences. Although the conference will occur in a virtual format this year, we know that you will find this event to be an informative and engaging experience, whether you are a presenter, attendee, faculty/staff member, or grad school representative. We have forged many new partnerships—particularly Whova, our conference management app—to bring you an immersive undergraduate research experience at FURC 2021!
