NCUR Logo Option A

The 34th annual National Conferences on Undergraduate Research will take place March 26 – 28, 2020, at Montana State University in Bozeman, MT.

With more than 4,000 undergraduate students in attendance, this is the largest annual gathering of undergraduate research students presenting their research and creative activities.

The University of Tennessee, Knoxville will be offering travel scholarships for this event. Students with accepted abstracts will receive preference for scholarships. Due to the distance of travel, fewer scholarships will be available than for past locations.


Abstracts can be submitted from September 30, 2019 to December 6, 2019.

Funding for travel will be limited this year due to the conference location.  Please submit your travel scholarship application at the same time as you submit your abstract.  No late travel scholarships will be accepted.  We also ask that you ask for funding from your department, to help defray travel costs.

Students traveling to NCUR are ineligible for the UGR Student Travel Grants Program and must apply for the NCUR travel grant specifically..
