Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR) Undergraduate Poster Session on Capital Hill

Please remember that the Application Deadline for the 2011 Posters on the Hill event is November 15, 2010.

Nothing more effectively demonstrates the value of undergraduate research than the words and stories of the student participants themselves. In the Spring of 2011 the Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR) will host its 15th 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 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 our 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, the link to submit an application, frequently asked questions, and a document listing the information required for submission, please visit: 

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.  We will not review incomplete applications. Please be sure that both portions (the electronic application and the electronic recommendation letter) are submitted by November 15, 2010. 

Please forward this to anyone that you think might be interested. This is a highly competitive program, which makes for a very exciting experience for the students and their faculty advisors alike.

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
