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.  The Office of Engaged Learning is pleased to promote as well as offer financial support for students to attend NCUR each year.

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 research student achievement; provides models of exemplary research, scholarship, and creative activity; and offers undergraduate research students valuable tools for career readiness development.

Student presentations are welcome in all fields and disciplines from the creative and performing arts to biomedical, engineering, and social science research. NCUR is a wonderful opportunity to network with peers and faculty from around the country working in similar research fields, learn about how research and scholarship is conducted in a variety of disciplines, to learn about graduate school and employment opportunities, and, of course, to develop presentation skills.
