We are looking forward to the second Florida Undergraduate Research Posters at the Capitol in downtown Tallahassee from January 19-20th, 2022!

Running for its second year, Florida Undergraduate Research Posters at the Capitol is an opportunity for four students from each FURA Institutional Member to share their dynamic and engaging undergraduate research and connect with Florida representatives. Students learn more about the political process and how to advocate for undergraduate research at the local and state governmental level.
