The National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR) will be held April 6-8, 2017, at the University of Memphis. 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.
Luther College will provide funding support for selected students to present at the conference. Students will pay $50 of the registration fee.
Application deadline is 5:00 p.m. Monday, November 7, 2016. Abstracts are usually 250-300 words long; absolute maximum is 300 words. Applications require student information and a faculty sponsor. There are special requirements for submissions in Dance, Theatre, and the Visual Arts.
New this year: "Fast Pitch" Entrepreneurial Competition, giving students the opportunity to present the commercialization potential of their research in an environment that celebrates new venture creation, entrepreneurial thinking, and the spirit of innovation and entrepreneurship. Three cash prizes will be awarded. See http://www.cur.org/ncur_2017/ncur_fast_pitch_competition/ for details.
Information about the conference is available online at http://www.cur.org/ncur_2017/. 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.
