National Conference on Undergraduate Research

Page address:

The 29th National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR) promotes undergraduate research, scholarship, and creative activity in all fields of study by sponsoring an annual conference for students. Minnesota State Mankato students are encouraged to consider participating in this conference, which will be held April 16-18, 2015 at Eastern Washington University. Grants are available to help with travel expenses. 

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.

As a student presenter at NCUR, you will also have the opportunity to publish your work in the Conference Proceedings edited and produced annually by the University of North Carolina at Asheville and distributed across the nation. All student presenters at the Conference are invited to submit manuscripts for review by the Proceedings Board.
