The annual Undergraduate Psychology Research Conference at the University of Virginia will be held April 17, 2015. Participation is open to any undergraduate student, whether from U.S. or international institutions. Abstract proposals for a poster or oral presentation of empirical research results may be submitted beginning January 6, 2015, and until March 9, 2015. The selection committee will review proposals and notify accepted applicants by March 25.     

Presentation Eligibility       

Students applying to present must be currently enrolled or have completed empirical research as an undergraduate. Oral presentations must have only one author, and those presenting posters may have their name listed on only one poster. Faculty advisors are to be noted separately.

Presentation content should bear on psychological theory and involve empirical analysis.  Analyses need not be completed at the time of application, but completion by the time of the conference should be feasible.

Early registration is advised, as conference space is limited. If you wish to present, please submit your abstract when you register (see abstract guidelines below).

Some financial assistance may be available to help defray travel costs for out-of-state presenters who attend the conference. Please email John Rudder ( for more information.        

Parents and faculty, as well as students who are not presenting  are encouraged to attend. There is no cost for registration, but these individuals should register by March 25, 2016.
