The UCLA Nazarian Center for Israel Studies was pleased to host its fourth annual Undergraduate Scholars Conference in Israel Studies. This was a unique opportunity for undergraduate students (Bachelor's degree programs) to present and discuss their research on modern Israel (in any academic discipline). Students selected to showcase their work at the conference were invited to give a 10 to 12-minute presentation of their work and participate in a moderated Q&A with their peers. The 2022 virtual conference was open to student submissions from any campus in the United States and abroad.
