2018 "Posters on the Hill" 

Applications can now be submitted for CUR's 22nd annual Posters on the Hill event in Washington, DC. This competitive event gives students the opportunity to showcase their research to congressional members, meet with their representatives, and learn about advocacy for undergraduate research. Applications will be accepted from September 6, 2017, to November 1, 2017. 

Each year, 60 top student research projects are selected out of hundreds of applications. Accompanied by their faculty mentors, students have the opportunity to present their research on Capitol Hill, attend field trips to important institutions in the D.C area, and participate in an orientation and advocacy training session to prepare for their congressional visits.

What Is NCUR?

The National Conferences on Undergraduate Research (NCUR), established in 1987, is dedicated to promoting undergraduate research, scholarship, and creative activity in all fields of study by sponsoring an annual conference for students. Unlike meetings of academic professional organizations, this gathering of young scholars welcomes presenters from all institutions of higher learning and from all corners of the academic curriculum. Through this annual conference, NCUR creates a unique environment for the celebration and promotion of undergraduate student achievement, provides models of exemplary research and scholarship, and helps to improve the state of undergraduate education.

NCUR 2017's Statement on Diversity and Inclusion

“The Council on Undergraduate Research is strongly committed to the wide expression of all forms and topics of undergraduate research, by all members of the undergraduate research community, and views with great concern any actions or policies that affect that commitment to inclusivity.”
