On April 1 and 2, the psychology community came together to celebrate undergraduate student research at the 18th Annual Psychology Undergraduate Research Conference (PURC) .
PURC is an opportunity for our undergraduate researchers to showcase their work, gain experience in presenting at conferences, and contribute to the scientific community. With the opportunity to share research also comes the chance to be recognized for excellence in conducting and presenting that research.
Join us in congratulating the winners of ‘Best Poster’ and ‘Best Oral Presentation’ at PURC this past weekend. Each award recipient will receive a certificate honouring their achievement and $100, courtesy of the Department of Psychology.
