UURAF (pronounced: you-raf) provides Michigan State undergraduate students with an opportunity to showcase their scholarship and creative activity. Held each spring, UURAF brings together an intellectual community of undergraduate students to share their work with faculty, staff, peers, and external audiences.  Participants will gain experience in presenting their research, answer questions about their work from audience members and guests, and receive constructive feedback from judges.


Graduate School Recruitment Fair

Student presenters are encouraged to visit with MSU graduate programs to learn more about future educational, research, and career opportunities. 

MSU graduate programs are invited to participate in the graduate school recruitment fair at UURAF. The fair will run concurrently with UURAF presentations. The $75 registration fee includes: lunch for up to two recruiters, a 6-foot table, and validated parking. There is a $30 charge for additional recruiters.

Registration for graduate recruiters is now open and will close in late March. Questions? Contact Heather Dover, Coordinator for Undergraduate Research.
