Posters on the Hill 2020 – Call for Abstracts

Washington D.C.
Deadline: CLOSED

In spring 2020, the Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR) will host its 24th annual undergraduate poster session on Capitol Hill. Posters on the Hill aims to ensure that  U.S. Congress members who provide funding for research and education have a clear understanding of the programs they fund and why these programs are important. Nothing demonstrates the value of undergraduate research more effectively than the words and stories of the student participants themselves.

CUR is calling for undergraduate students to submit an abstract describing their research in any of CUR's discipline divisions: arts and humanities, biology, chemistry, engineering, geosciences, health sciences, mathematics/computer science, physics/astronomy, psychology and social sciences.

CSUF students were accepted to present at Posters on the Hill in 2017, 2016 and 2015, so please consider applying for this prestigious and important opportunity!

Travel Costs

The Office of Research and Sponsored Projects (ORSP) will contribute $1,000 to student travel for accepted presentations.

Event Date

TBD. The exact date will be set once the Congressional calendar for spring 2020 is finalized. The last Posters on the Hill took place April 29-30, 2019 in Washington, D.C.


** CSUF is an institutional member of CUR **
