National Conference on Undergraduate Research

Each Spring, the National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR) sponsors a national meeting (usually around the beginning of April) exclusively for undergraduate students to come together and present the results of their research. Regardless of whether you participated in research through directed research, a UROP, or volunteering, presenting at this conference is a great opportunity to network with peers and faculty from around the country, and to showcase your hard work.

To apply to present at NCUR, you must submit an official abstract. You should work with your faculty mentor to write and submit an abstract based on the results of your research. The deadline for abstract submission is around the beginning of December each year. Additionally, each year CBS will provide full funding to a handful of CBS students to present their work at NCUR. Applications for CBS NCUR funding are due in mid December of each year.

NCUR 2019: April 10-13th, Kennesaw State University

CBS NCUR Funding 
All NCUR funding from CBS for the 2019 year has already been awarded. Students still looking for funding opportunities are encouraged to work with their research labs or the Office of Undergraduate Research to finance any expenses.
