Undergraduate Research Opportunity: Posters on the Hill

Each spring, the Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR) hosts an annual undergraduate poster session on Capitol Hill.  This event helps members of Congress understand the importance of undergraduate research by talking directly with the students whom these programs impact. In addition, several federal funding agencies are invited to the event. This is a tremendous opportunity for undergraduate students to share their research with a most impressive audience.

Abstracts should represent CUR’s disciplinal divisions (Arts and Humanities, Biology, Chemistry, Geosciences, Health Sciences, Mathematics/Computer Science, Physics/Astronomy, Psychology, and Social Sciences). Each abstract should explain the work that was performed and discuss the importance of the work to society (i.e., what larger problem were you trying to solve or understand?). There will be two student presentation sessions, a luncheon panel and poster session for arts and humanities students, and an evening poster session and reception for science and social sciences students.

For SU students interested in being considered for inclusion, applications are now being accepted and the deadline for submission is Wednesday, November 5, 2014. The session is scheduled for mid-March 2015. For more information, visit www.cur.org/conferences_and_events/student_events/posters_on_the_hill .
