The 35th Annual National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR) will be held virtually on April 12-14, 2021.

The annual conference showcases the research done by undergraduates in all fields of study. This year, students can present a digital poster, give an oral presentation, showcase an art display or performing arts and more from the comfort of their home. 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. We can’t imagine how many will participate virtually this year!

This year, Lafayette College will support funding for student registration costs.

Those who want to be part of NCUR 2021 need to review the recording from the recent information session as well as slides from the presentation. Students also are encouraged to review the NCUR abstract submission instructions and FAQ page for information on how to participate.
