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. NOTE: For CBS students, please list Dr. Jacob Moore (moorejl@umn.edu) as the Undergraduate Research Office Coordinator.

Need additional help with your abstract? Set up an Undergraduate Research Coaching appointment with Dr. Moore.

Funding for NCUR

CBS is able to provide full support for a small number of students who are accepted to present at NCUR. To apply for CBS NCUR funding, you need to submit an additional funding application to CBS, in addition to submitting your abstract to NCUR. Applications for NCUR 2018 travel funding are currently closed. Check back in September 2018 for the NCUR 2019 funding application.
