The 36th annual NCUR will be held virtually on April 4-8, 2022.

This conference showcases the research done by undergraduates in all fields of study. This year, accepted abstract presenters will be assigned to a learning group/cohort within a similar discipline and given the opportunity to present a digital poster, give an oral presentation, showcase an art display or performing arts, and more. New this year, students will be able to opt in to a competitive element for their presentations. In previous years, more than 2,800 faculty and students from over 300 institutions attended NCUR in person, making it the largest celebration of undergraduate research.
