Student Presenter Registration


Student Presenters:

Registration for student presenters closes on Tuesday, March 15, 2022.

  • NOTE: March 15, 2022 is also the submission deadline date


The primary purpose of the URS is to give students an opportunity to present their research at a professional conference. As an undergraduate student, you will be expected to share your work later in your career either as a graduate student or in the professional world. The URS is a great way to gain constructive feedback from an assigned faculty moderator, and gain experience presenting your work in a congenial and positive environment.

At the URS, you can also expect to meet like-minded individuals who share an interest in academia, enjoy complimentary breakfast & lunch, and network with other SHSU students and faculty. Most importantly, you will leave with the prestige of presenting at a paid conference for FREE.

  • Registration Tip: Make sure to select "Student Presenter" and the correct type of presentation.

Student Testimonies

Rayya Gordon

At our 12th Annual URS in April 2019, student Rayya Gordon, participated for the second year in a row with an oral presentation about racial hierarchies and epistemology theories in the philosophy of race. To put together her presentation, Rayya completed research while taking a philosophy of race seminar at Sam Houston State University about critical race theories with Dr. Leamon Bazil. Today, Rayya serves as an Honors Student Ambassador and as an Ambassador for the College of Humanities and Social Sciences!

Maria Hendrickson

At our 11th Annual URS in 2018, student Maria Hendrickson, seen here dressed as Rey from Star Wars, gave an oral presentation about how she built a screen accurate replica of Rey's costume from The Force Awakens. Maria spent 18 months putting the costume together, and about 45 minutes putting it on before she presented, as it was an integral part of her presentation. Today, Maria is serving her third year as an Honors Student Ambassador and president of the newly-created SHSU KatKon student organization as she continues to pursue degrees in Biology, Chemistry, and Spanish!
