Posters on the Hill 2014
Submission Period: September 2-November 4, 2013
As the undergraduate research community works to ensure that members in the U.S. Congress have a clear understanding of the research and education programs they fund, nothing more effectively demonstrates the value of undergraduate research than a student participant's words, work and stories. Undergraduate research must be among those programs that members of Congress understand if it is to continue to be supported.
In spring 2014, the Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR) will host its
18th Annual Posters on the Hill
. There will be an evening poster session and reception where students will have the opportunity to speak directly to member of Congress and demonstrate how they have been impacted by these programs.
Event Date: TBD. The exact dates will be set once the Congressional calendar for spring 2014 is finalized.
Students: The Council on Undergraduate Research invites you to submit an abstract for the 18th Annual Posters on the Hill. Your research should represent one of CUR’s Divisions (Arts and Humanities, Biology, Chemistry, Geosciences, Health Sciences, Mathematics/Computer Science, Physics/Astronomy, Psychology, and Social Sciences). Abstract submissions should describe your research, scholarship or creative activity and discuss its significance to society (i.e., what larger issues or problems were you trying address or understand?; how does your work relate to current policy issues?).
Deadline: Nov. 4, 2013
Advisors: You will receive an email confirmation when your student submits an application. This email will include directions on how to upload an electronic letter of recommendation. Please note that the letter must be submitted no later than the Nov. 4 deadline and must be on institution letterhead. Without a letter of recommendation, an application will be considered incomplete and will not be reviewed. Only one letter of recommendation should be sent, and the signature on the letter must match the name of the advisor listed in the application. Multiple advisors may sign the single letter.
