Each year the Undergraduate Research and Creative Works (URCW) Office is committed to promoting undergraduate research, scholarship, and creative activity in all fields of study by providing paying the cost of registration for those students whose proposals are accepted to present at NCUR. 

Please note the following:

  • In the case of a team submission, registration for one presenter will be covered by the URCW. Student travel expenses will need to be secured by the student and/or the students department funds. 
  • All NCUR student attendee's must register individually this means each student, regardless of whether they are part of a team or an individual presenter, will need to register to attend for all accepted abstracts. The URCW will cover the cost for only one member of a team to present.
  • Students that are part of more than one team need only register once.
  • When registering students will need to select "Invoice my Institution" in order to have the cost covered by the URCW.
  • ** February 7, 2024, is the last day the "Invoice my Institution" option for payment will be available. After February 7, payment will need to be made via credit card with no option for reimbursement from URCW.
  • All faculty mentors are responsible for their own registration fees and travel expenses.

The National Conference for Undergraduate Research (NCUR),, 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.  

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.


The Undergraduate Research and Creative Works (URCW) Office is pleased to support undergraduate students research efforts. Those abstracts that are accepted to present at NCUR will have the conference registration paid for one presenter by the URCW. To apply for travel expenses please use the URSCA Dissemination Grant URSCA Dissemination and attach a copy of your conference acceptance. Travel funds may be limited.
