Learning Through Research

Advocating for Undergraduate Research

Posters on the Hill

It is increasingly important that the undergraduate research community works to ensure that those in the U.S. Congress who provide funding for research and education have a clear understanding of the programs they fund and why these programs are important. Undergraduate research must be among those programs that members of Congress understand if it is to continue to be supported.
Nothing more effectively demonstrates the value of undergraduate research than the words and stories of the student participants themselves. Each Spring, the Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR) hosts an undergraduate poster session on Capitol Hill. This event helps members of Congress understand the importance of undergraduate research by talking directly with the students whom these programs impact.  For more information about this event please visit the Posters on the Hill Information Page.
