Posters on the Hill

Page address: http://www.mnsu.edu/urc/students/opportunities/poh.html

Nothing more effectively demonstrates the value of undergraduate research than the words and stories of the student participants themselves. In the Spring of 2014 the Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR) will host its 18th annual undergraduate poster session on Capitol Hill. This event will help members of Congress understand the importance of undergraduate research by talking directly with the students whom these programs impact.

CUR is calling for students of member institutions to submit an abstract of their research that represents any of CUR's disciplinary divisions (Arts and Humanities, Biology, Chemistry, Geosciences, Health Sciences, Mathematics/Computer Science, Physics/Astronomy, Psychology, and Social Sciences). In order to ensure proper review of applications, the above are the only disciplines that may apply.  Should your research be inter-disciplinary, please select the division that most closely describes your research.

Abstract submissions will only be accepted by using the on-line submission form.  Prior to submitting the form, students should gather the contact information for all co-authors, advisors and sponsors (if applicable), prepare a short vitae/resume, and poster abstract.  

For more information, and the link to submit an application, please visit the CUR website for Posters on the Hill call for abstracts.   Please note that CUR membership is required to submit an application.  Either the student’s home institution must have an institutional membership, or the faculty mentor or student must have an individual membership. 

Please encourage your students to submit. This is a highly competitive program, which makes for a very exciting experience for the students and their faculty advisors alike.
