Add event to calendar

As the undergraduate research community works to ensure that those in the U.S. Congress have a clear understanding of the research and education programs they fund, nothing more effectively demonstrates the value of undergraduate research than a student participant's words, work, and stories. Undergraduate research must be among the programs that members of Congress understand if it is to continue to be supported, and to grow. 

Students and their faculty mentors are invited to apply for the Council on Undergraduate Research's (CUR) 19th annual undergraduate poster session on Capitol Hill. In addition to other events, there will be an evening poster session and reception where students will have the opportunity to speak directly to members of Congress and demonstrate how they have been impacted by these programs. 

Students: The Council on Undergraduate Research invites you to submit an abstract for the 19th Annual Posters on the Hill. Your research should represent one of CUR’s Divisions (Arts and Humanities, Biology, Chemistry, Engineering, Geosciences, Health Sciences, Mathematics/Computer Science, Physics/Astronomy, Psychology, and Social Sciences). Abstract submissions should describe your research, scholarship, or creative activity and discuss its significance to society (i.e. what larger issues or problems were you trying address or understand?; how does your work relate to current policy issues?).

 

Please visit the website for more information about the submission process and Posters on the Hill program. Questions? Please contact Mary Pat Twomey, Manager for Student Programs, at mptwomey@cur.org.

 

Applications due Wednesday, November 5, 2014, including letter of recommendation.
