Student Opportunity Center

soc

The Office of Creative Inquiry and Undergraduate Research has partnered with the Student Opportunity Center (SOC) to bring all Clemson undergraduate students access to more than 10,000 presentation, publishing, internships, and funding opportunities. The SOC is a database and community platform where students are connected with academic engagement opportunities.

The Database lists thousands of events (conferences, meetings), publications (journals, blogs), and experiential learning opportunities (intern/scholar programs, grants). The Community Platform provides a way for students to create/participate in their own events & opportunities on institutional, local, state, and regional levels.
