Council on Undergraduate Research - Posters on the Hill
Nothing more effectively demonstrates the value of undergraduate research than the words and stories of the student participants themselves. Each year, the Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR) hosts its annual undergraduate poster session, Posters on the Hill, in our Nation's Capitol. This event is designed to help members of Congress understand the importance of undergraduate research by talking directly with the students whom these programs impact.
CUR is calling for students to submit an abstract of their research that represents any of CUR's divisions (Arts and Humanities, Biology, Chemistry, Geosciences, Mathematics/Computer Science, Physics/Astronomy, Psychology, and Social Sciences). In order to ensure proper review of applications, the above are the only disciplines that may apply. Should your research be inter-disciplinary, please select the division that most closely describes your research.
Abstract submissions will only be accepted by using our on-line submission form. Prior to submitting the form, students should gather the contact information for all co-authors, advisors and sponsors (if applicable), prepare a short vitae/resume, and poster abstract. Please see the attachment for application information.
Please note that a new requirement mandating that faculty advisors, directors of undergraduate research, or the institution must be a member of CUR to be eligible to apply. Ineligible applications will not be reviewed. CUR will not review incomplete applications. Please be sure that both portions (the electronic application and the electronic recommendation letter) are submitted by the appropriate deadline. This year's deadline is November 10, 2009 by 11:59 pm.
