Undergraduate Research Posters at the Capitol brings together four student researchers from FURA-affiliated institutions to present their research to state legislators in Tallahassee, while the Florida Undergraduate Research Conference (FURC) is one of the largest multidisciplinary undergraduate research conferences in the US. in addition to allowing students an opportunity to present their research, FURC attracts numerous graduate schools from across the US who meet with attendees.
