National Conference on Undergraduate Research

Page address: http://www.mnsu.edu/urc/ncur/

NCUR - the National Conferences on Undergraduate Research - have been the premier national conferences devoted exclusively to undergraduate student research and creativity in all disciplines for 34 years. Montana State University is proud to host NCUR 2020. We invite you to join us in Bozeman, Montana, for NCUR 2020.

NCUR 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. All abstracts and applications will be reviewed by a faculty committee from the host institution. Students presenting at the National Conference will have the option of doing an oral or poster presentation.

 Congratulations to the following students on the acceptance of their abstracts to the 2020 National Conference on Undergraduate Research!
