Foundation for Undergraduate Research and Creativity (FURSCA)
FURSCA is the Foundation for Undergraduate Research, Scholarship, and Creative Activity. And it's where you’ll find solutions to real problems.
Investigation. Interpretation. Presentation. Put them together and you have one of the highest forms of learning. At the Foundation for Undergraduate Research, Scholarship, and Creative Activity (FURSCA), we pair students with faculty mentors to develop and carry out research and other creative projects. Our programs are open to students in every discipline.
And it’s all up to you.
You’ll choose your subject, develop your methodology, pursue your interest, interpret your findings, and present the results. The Elkin R. Isaac Student Research Symposium is held one day each spring, and classes are canceled to allow the entire campus to attend. So immerse yourself in the subjects that inspire you, and be ready for your next big step.
