National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR)

  • NCUR is dedicated to promoting undergraduate research, scholarship, and creative activity in all fields of study by sponsoring an annual conference for students.
  • Welcomes student presenters from all institutions of higher learning and from all disciplines.
  • Each conference hosts around 4,000 students from across the globe – the largest symposium of its kind in the world!
  • Student participants in NCUR may present in one of the following formats: Oral, Poster, Visual Arts, or Performing Arts.
  • Student presenters at NCUR have the opportunity to publish their work in the Conference Proceedings, which are edited and produced by the University of North Carolina at Asheville and widely distributed.
  • Presenters are encouraged to invite other students, colleagues, faculty and mentors to attend.

NCUR is held in the spring each year with registration opening in the fall. Check back here or on the NCUR website for updates. Students interested in presenting can contact HOUR about possible funding assistance.

Posters on the Hill

Each spring, CUR hosts an annual undergraduate poster session on Capital Hill. At this event and its related activities, members of Congress and staff learn about the importance of undergraduate research by interacting directly with student researchers. As JHU is an institutional member of CUR, you are eligible to participate in this event!

Application information to present at Posters on the Hill 2020 will be announced later this summer. Check back!

World Congress on Undergraduate Research (WorldCUR)

WorldCUR brings together the world’s best undergraduate researchers to focus on some of the most significant challenges facing the global community. Students are invited to share their research, discuss global issues, and create or strengthen international research partnerships.

WorldCur 2019 was recently held at the University of Oldenburg in Germany. Lujendra Ojha, a research scientist and Blaustein postdoctoral fellow in Earth and Planetary Science at JHU was a featured keynote speaker! If you are interested in participating this year, please contact HOUR.
