National Conferences on Undergraduate Research (NCUR)


April 12-14, 2021

Submit your abstract by December 1, 2020!

The Council on Undergraduate Research is excited to announce that the National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR) will be held virtually—from wherever is comfortable with a Wifi connection—in 2021. CUR has been monitoring the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic situation for many months and has made the decision that the safest way to hold NCUR is in the digital space.


So, what does this mean for you?

You can expect to apply for and attend NCUR just as you would any other year but from the comfort of your home. No traveling or hotels required. You will have the option to present a digital poster, give an oral presentation, showcase an art display or performing arts presentation, and more.
