Learning Through Research

Application Deadline: Monday, November 4, 2013

Students (Step 1):  The Council on Undergraduate Research invites you to submit an abstract for the 18th Annual Posters on the Hill. Your research should represent one of CUR’s Divisions (Arts and Humanities, Biology, Chemistry, Engineering, Geosciences, Health Sciences, Mathematics/Computer Science, Physics/Astronomy, Psychology, and Social Sciences).  Abstract submissions should describe your research, scholarship, or creative activity and discuss its significance to society (i.e. what larger issues or problems were you trying address or understand?; how does your work relate to current policy issues?).

We recommend that you compile the information required for submission prior to starting this application.

CUR membership is required in order to apply:  either the home institution must have an institutional membership or the faculty advisor or undergraduate research coordinator must have an individual membership.  Membership will be verified either when you select your institution or when you add your faculty advisor or undergraduate research coordinator to your application through the search function.  To check membership status, please reference the list of institutional members.  Should you have additional questions regarding your membership, please contact CUR's Director of Membership at curmember@cur.org.

Please select “Start New Submission” to create a new application.  If you have already created a profile or started an application, please select “Edit Existing Submission” to continue working on your application.

Faculty (Step 2):  Once your student has submitted their application, you will receive an email on how to upload a letter of recommendation.  Please select “Edit Existing Submission” to access your student’s application and upload your letter.
