The National Conference for Undergraduate Research (NCUR), www.ncur.org, is dedicated to promoting undergraduate research, scholarship, and creative activity in all fields of study by sponsoring an annual conference for students to present their work. 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.
Student presentations are welcome in all fields and disciplines from the creative and performing arts to biomedical, engineering, and social science research. The National Conference for Undergraduate Research is a wonderful opportunity to meet peers and faculty from around the country working in similar research fields, learn about how research and scholarship is conducted in fields very different than your own, to learn about graduate school and employment opportunities, and, of course, to develop your presentation skills.
Student applications and abstracts must be submitted to NCUR by December 2, 2016 (www.cur.org/ncur_2017/).
The Office of Engaged Learning has limited funding available for registration and travel costs for students whose proposals are accepted to NCUR. Students will be able to apply for NCUR travel funding through The Office of Engaged Learning after they have been notified by NCUR that their abstract has been accepted.
To apply for travel funding through The Office of Engaged Learning please join Orgsync.com and add UVU and The Office of Engaged Learning to your membership, go to "Forms" and look for the NCUR Travel Funding Application.
Once a student has been awarded travel funding from OEL they may register to attend NCUR. Students who register prior to being awarded travel funds or who are not awarded travel funds will be responsible for the cost.
Students need to work with a UVU faculty mentor for their project to be eligible. Students are strongly encouraged to work with the UVU Office of Academic Research Support (OARS). The mission of OARS is to provide consultation and assistance to support and facilitate faculty and student research and scholarship. Please contact OARS staff at 801-863-7520 or firstname.lastname@example.org. For additional information, please go to www.uvu.edu/oars/.
