The 33rd Annual National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR) will be held at Kennesaw State University April 11-13, 2019.

The conference showcases research conducted by undergraduates in all fields of study. Students can give oral presentations, participate in poster sessions, present original artwork, or give a performance in dance, music or theater. More than 3,500 faculty and students from over 300 institutions attend NCUR, making it the largest celebration of undergraduate research.
