National Conference on Undergraduate Research


The National Conference on Undergraduate Research is an annual student conference dedicated to promoting undergraduate research, scholarship, and creative activity in all fields of study. Unlike meetings of academic professional organizations, this gathering of young scholars welcomes presenters from institutions of higher learning from all corners of the academic curriculum. This annual conference 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 2016 will be held at the University of North Carolina, Asheville on April 7-9, 2016.  Online abstract submission opens October 5, 2015. The submission deadline is December 2, 2015. Abstracts accepted by NCUR may undergo an internal review process to determine eligibility for travel funding. 

CUR - The Council on Undergraduate Research, founded in 1978, is a national organization representing over 900 colleges and universities and 8,000 individual faculty memberships. Their mission is to support and promote high-quality undergraduate student-faculty collaborative research and scholarship. CUR sponsors the annual National Conference on Undergraduate Research.
