Discovery Day 2019


Fall Student Research Symposium (SRS)

The Fall Student Research Symposium is a chance for undergraduate and graduate students to present their research experiences and findings, featuring poster presentations from across disciplines.

Discovery Day

The Discovery Day Student Research Symposium represents the culmination of the hard work, dedication and significant achievements of our fellow student researchers on the Daytona Beach and Worldwide campuses. With poster and oral presentations across disciplines, the symposium provides a unique look into the breadth and depth of outstanding research and innovation being cultivated by our amazing students.


The Office of Undergraduate Research supports student presentation of their research at a wide array of industry conferences through our Spark Conference Travel Grant. Furthermore, we support student delegations to FURC, NCUR, Posters at the Florida State Capitol and Posters on the Hill.

Florida Undergraduate Research Conference (FURC)

FURC is one of the nation's largest multi-disciplinary research conferences. It is an annual event open to all undergraduate researchers in the state of Florida to present their research in a poster forum. FURC 2023 will be hosted by St. Thomas University on February 17-18, 2023. Abstract submissions are due by December 10, 2022.

National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR)

NCUR is the nation's largest multi-disciplinary research conference. Typically, the conference is hosted during late March or early April. Abstract submissions are due in December.

Posters at the Florida State Capitol

Posters at the Capitol is held at the Florida State Capitol Complex in downtown Tallahassee. At this event, up to four undergraduate researchers from each university and college across the state present their research in a poster format; they will also have the opportunity to interact with legislative members from their representative districts. Information about the 2023 event will be announced at a later date.

Posters on the Hill

Each spring, the Council on Undergraduate Research hosts the annual Posters on the Hill. At this event and its related activities, members of Congress and their staff members learn about the importance of undergraduate research by talking directly with the student researchers. Applications are due in November.
