Beyond Academics

Global Research Competition
Launched in 2013, the UIC Global Research Competition cultivates and encourages real-world research experience by providing UIC undergraduates with the funds and mentorship to plan and execute a self-directed research project anywhere around the world. Students from a full range of disciplines-the hard sciences to the humanities-can submit a proposal for a project as long as the project will enhance and deepen the student’s knowledge in the classroom. With help from UIC faculty, undergraduates learn each phase of the standard research process: developing research plans, writing proposals, conducting research, analyzing data, and presenting research results.

Upon completion of the research, students showcase their research through formal presentations and poster sessions. Selected excerpts from their research will be published in various UIC publications.
