  • National Conference on Undergraduate Research- “The National Conferences on Undergraduate Research (NCUR), established in 1987, is dedicated to promoting undergraduate research, scholarship, and creative activity in all fields of study by sponsoring an annual conference for students. Unlike meetings of academic professional organizations, this gathering of young scholars welcomes presenters from all institutions of higher learning and from all corners of the academic curriculum. Through this annual conference, NCUR creates a unique environment for the celebration and promotion of undergraduate student achievement, provides models of exemplary research and scholarship, and helps to improve the state of undergraduate education. Students presenting at the National Conference will have the option of doing an oral or poster presentation.” Students must follow the instructions to be eligible for travel funds.
  • Posters on the Hill This poster session is held on Capitol Hill each spring. This event provides opportunities for undergraduate researcher present their work and speak directly with their representatives.

The Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program supports active research participation by undergraduate students in any of the areas of research funded by the National Science Foundation. REU projects involve students in meaningful ways in ongoing research programs or in research projects specifically designed for the REU program. Click here for the directory of active REU projects.
