Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR) holds a biennial conference in even years in Washington, D.C. This conference is considered to be one of the most prestigious conferences for undergraduate research activities. It features over 100 workshops, presentations by representatives of funding agencies, social interactions, and poster presentations. One of the goals of this conference is to encourage broad participation in undergraduate research.
This year the conference will be held June 28 - July 1. The deadline for the poster presentation has been extended to Feb. 28 due to inclement weather around the country. Please consider sending a submission to the poster session of this conference of your research that you have done with your undergraduate student.
The Student Life department may provide $500 toward the travel and registration costs of those undergraduate students who will present their research at the conference. Undergraduate Research Program (URP) will assist in providing the rest of the funds for undergraduate students. However, funds from Student Life and URP are limited, and all undergraduate students may not be funded fully.
