Undergraduate Research Day at the Capitol   

The Center for Undergraduate Research is now accepting applications from students interested in participating in the Kansas Undergraduate Research Day at the Capitol, which will take place in Topeka on Wednesday, February 12, 2014. Ten KU students will be selected to join their peers from the other Kansas Board of Regents (KBOR) public four-year universities in Topeka. The participating students will present their research in poster board format to legislators and other members of state government. The purpose of this event is to demonstrate the unique opportunities undergraduate students have to participate with faculty members in research at KBOR universities.
