Research Competition

Want an opportunity to present research, school papers, or a co-op term in an engaging way?

VIPIRG's Research Competition gives UVic undergraduate students the opportunity to describe your work with a larger audience, where you'll be asked to describe this work and its significance to the greater community.

'From Classrooms to Community' gives students a wonderful opportunity to showcase your classroom work to students and professors from different disciplines, as well as to community members, and local companies.

The event will be advertised widely and participants will benefit from the resume boost of winning the competition as well as sharing insights on their research with a diverse audience. Apply below for a chance to present your work.
