2021-2022 Student Conferences
This list was last updated on January 31st, 2022. If you know of any other student conferences we should add to this list, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Presenting at a conference is a great way to gain experience presenting your work in a professional setting and also offers the opportunity to receive invaluable feedback on your work from both peers and other academics in the field. Conferences also allow you to see what your peers are researching, network, and are an excellent addition to your resume or graduate school application. Talk to your faculty mentor for conference recommendations within your field, or check out the list of student conferences below.
Below you will find a list of conferences that have been recommended by our undergraduate researchers and our office. More conferences can be found at the Council on Undergraduate Research's webpage.
LSU Discover offers funding to cover registration and travel expenses if you are presenting your research at a in person or virtual conference! Find out more at our Travel Stipends page.
