PURC Program Offers Research & Creative Project Opportunities for Undergrads

The Pembroke Undergraduate Research and Creativity (PURC) Center offers multiple funding opportunities for undergraduate students interested in doing research or a creative project. Plus, it offers funds to help defray student travel to conferences/shows/presentations. 

PURC not only offers poster printing services for students presenting at conferences, but it also offers annual poster development workshops. 

Students across campus are given a great opportunity to present poster or oral presentations of their projects during the annual PURC Symposium. Numerous Biology students have received PURC funding and have presented their work at the annual symposia. Click here to view photos of Biology presentations at the 2013 Annual PURC Symposium.
