Application to present at NCUR

The National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR) will be held April 3-5, 2014, at the University of Kentucky.  Since the first conference in 1987, NCUR has grown to become a major annual event that provides undergraduate scholars in all fields and from all types of institutions of higher learning a forum to share the results of their work through posters, presentations, performances, and works of art.  Keynote speakers scheduled to address NCUR 2014 include Alltech global animal health company president Dr. T. Pearse Lyons, poet Nikky Finney, Kentucky Science and Technology Corporation president Kris Kimel, and veterinary scientist Ernest Bailey.

Luther College will provide funding support for selected students to present at the conference.  Students will pay $50 of the registration fee.

Applications, which include a 250-300 word abstract, are due by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, November 8, 2013.  Applications require student information and a faculty sponsor.  There are special requirements for submissions in Dance, Theatre, and the Visual Arts.

Information about the conference is available online at  Luther uses a selection process to determine which abstracts we will sponsor; YOU SHOULD NOT SUBMIT YOUR ABSTRACT OR REGISTER FOR THE CONFERENCE DIRECTLY WITH NCUR.
