Undergraduate Research Conference

The Honors Program at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette is hosts an Annual Honors Undergraduate Research Conference each November at the University of Louisiana Lafayette Student Union Ballroom, where undergraduates from each of the colleges and universities around the state can meet to present papers, presentations, and posters of their research.

Any undergraduate student in any discipline who is engaged in active research can participate. Research can have been conducted this semester or last. Please note that participating students do not have to be part of an Honors program.

UL Lafayette’s Honors Program will pay for the hotel room for twelve (12) students and (1) faculty member from each university or college. Others are also welcome to attend. There is a $10 registration fee for all those who attend, including students and faculty from visiting schools and UL Lafayette.

Each student in attendance will be expected to present either in one of the oral sessions or in the poster session. Multi-person projects are welcome, and if two people are presenting we will cover payment for both students’ room as one.

*Research may have been finished last semester (Summer and Spring 2016).

**Undergraduates may have worked with a graduate student or faculty member, but the undergraduate’s name must be on the project, and only the undergraduate may present.

UL Lafayette Honors Program 3rd Floor Fundraiser


Go Here to See Pictures from the 2016 Honors Soiree d'Excellence

In 2014 the Honors Program presented a night of enchantment and pride, the Honors Soiree' d'Excellence. The Honors Program was able to raise nearly $5,000 with the help and proceeds of many students, professors, and community leaders for the expansion of the 3rd Floor of Judice-Rickels Hall. In 2016, the Honors Program supplied another opportunity for individuals, family members, alumni, and friends of the program to gather and dine in honor of the program and in order to raise funds for the 3rd floor expansion. Provided is a brief video created by Honors Students explaining our continued need.

If you would like to help us continue to increase the expansion of our 3rd floor, please do not hesitate to donate.
