Accepting Abstracts! National Conference on Undergraduate Research

The Council on Undergraduate Research is excited to announce that the National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR) will be held virtually—from wherever is comfortable with a Wi-fi connection—on April 12-14, 2021. NCUR is dedicated to promoting undergraduate research, scholarship, and creative activity in all fields of study by sponsoring an annual conference for students. Unlike meetings of academic professional organizations, this gathering of student scholars welcomes presenters from all institutions of higher learning across all disciplines.


  1. SUBMIT AN ABSTRACT Submissions are open. Submit as an individual or part of a research group (if submitting as a group, all co-presenters must create separate NCUR user accounts).

  2. SIGN UP TO BE AN ABSTRACT REVIEWER Faculty mentors, administrators, graduate students: we need your help! We expect several thousand submissions to NCUR this year and are calling on our valued CUR members for support.

  3. GET REGISTRATION RATES NCUR 2021 @Home will be hosted for the first time ever by the CUR National Office, and this year's registration will look a little different. We will have early registration options as early as December all the way through March.
