Summer Undergraduate Research Symposium (SURS) is an annual showcase for OSU undergraduates to present their research, scholarship, and creative projects to the broader university and Corvallis community. 
Undergraduates from all academic disciplines, in all years of study, and all stages of research will present a diversity of topics, approaches and interests at OSU. We encourage students to present virtually in a pre-recorded 3- or 10-minute talk in Canvas.

SURS 2022 Showcase

Registration opens Wednesday, June 1st

Information for Presenters 

Students will create either 3-minute or 10-minute pre-recorded talks, which will be hosted on Canvas. Each student will host their own discussion board where peers, mentors, and other OSU community members will ask questions and engage in dialogue during the event.
