Come and take a look at their scholastic endeavors and achievements during the 12th Annual Student Research and Creative Activity Fair (RCAF) on Friday, March 6 from 9 A.M. to 4 P.M. in the Milo Bail Student Center. The award ceremony will immediately follow the fair.
About the Fair
The Student RCAF provides a venue for all UNO students to showcase their research and creative activity as:
- Oral presentations
All students from all disciplines and departments, including engineering students from the Scott Campus will be presenting.
Prizes are awarded for top posters/demonstrations/exhibits, and oral presentations/performances.

FUSE grants support faculty-mentored undergraduate student research and creative activity. Grants of up to $2,500 per student are available to UNO undergraduate students. All FUSE recipients must present at the Student Research and Creative Activity Fair. Learn more about FUSE.

Short Classroom Presentation Available by ORCA
The Office of Research and Creative Activity (ORCA) welcomes the opportunity to give a 5-10 minute overview to your course about the Student RCAF and how students can best prepare. Please let us know if there is a date that would work for us to come to your classroom for a brief presentation by emailing Katy Vitale at firstname.lastname@example.org.
PowerPoint Slide to be Featured Before the Start of Class
We know that classroom time is limited. We also know that students often arrive to class early. ORCA is willing to provide a one-slide image that faculty can embed in classroom presentations leading up to the Fair.
