National Conference on Undergraduate Research

Established in 1987, the National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR) has consistently been one of the largest national conferences for promoting undergraduate research, creative, and scholastic achievement. This two to three-day annual event draws hundreds of talented students representing over 400 colleges and universities nationally. Students present their researching in a variety of different ways:

  • Topical sessions of 15 minute oral presenations
  • Interdisciplinary poster sessions
  • Artistic performances and visual art exhibits

An additional portion of NCUR includes plenary sessions led by nationally prominent speakers sharing their perspectives on educational policy, various programs and initiatives, funding opportunities for undergraduate research efforts, and career development.
