Application Information

The 2024 Spring Undergraduate Research Festival application is now closed. We invite the Ohio State community to visit Pomerene Hall's TDAI Ideation Zone to see the student presenters. 

Who can participate and what are the benefits of participation?

The annual Spring Undergraduate Research Festival is a research poster forum for students to share their mentored research projects with the broader academic community. At the Spring Festival, we offer presentations during 60 minute sessions, where students convey their research with the aid of a poster. As with the other forums hosted by UR&CI, the Spring Festival is not specific to any discipline; students from all disciplines across the university are invited to apply, and student presenters should prepare to discuss their research with a general audience. The Spring Festival is open to all undergraduate students at Ohio State who are participating in faculty-mentored research, and students can present on projects that are still ongoing - final results are not necessary for participation.

Visit the 2023 Spring Festival Program Brochure to see all the presenters listed by session time.
