The Office of Undergraduate Research's Fall and Spring Undergraduate Research Festivals (FURF and SURF) are held in celebration and recognition of undergraduate researchers' contributions to research, scholarly, and creative work at the University of Iowa.

All students involved in mentored research or creative work are invited to present their work at these festivals utilizing posters or other visual displays. A variety of judges from the University of Iowa community (peers, faculty, and graduate students) and the surrounding community are on hand to discuss student work and provide valuable feedback.  Every aspect of these events, from poster design to presentation, to fielding questions, is designed to help students hone research communication skills.  Watch this page, our Facebook page, or join or mailing list for updates about these events!

FURF and SURF are co-hosted by OUR, the Office of the Vice President for Research, and the Office of the Provost.
