Also, you are invited to the SURCA Awards Ceremony that starts at 5:00 p.m. in the CUB Auditorium.


We invite all WSU undergraduate students to participate! Presenting your work publicly fortifies your standing as a researchers and adds to your academic resume. Plus, SURCA awards are presented in nine categories.

How to Apply


We welcome faculty members, post-docs, and professionals to consider signing up to judge presentations in one of the SURCA categories. Serving as a judge is a great way to advance the scholarship of students and research standing of the university, as well as to promote your own field, program, and college.

How to Sign Up


SURCA thanks its generous sponsors, without whom this WSU tradition could not take place. Your contributions to SURCA directly benefit WSU students through awards for top presentations. SURCA 2022 is being sponsored by Alturas Analytics, Inc.; Robert H. (’77 Engineering and Honors) and Mary L. Rieck; and the WSU Office of the Provost and Executive Vice President.

Support SURCA


SURCA is the only WSU-wide event featuring the faculty-mentored research, scholarship, and creative activities of undergraduates from all majors, grades, and campuses—work that makes an original intellectual or creative contribution to a discipline.  It is a symposium hosted by the Office of Undergraduate Research, which is part of WSU Division of Academic Engagement and Student Achievement. SURCA is part of the annual WSU Showcase, highlighting academic achievements across WSU.
