The Council on Undergraduate Research is pleased to announce our 20th annual Posters on the Hill event will take place April 19th-20th in Washington, D.C. This year sixty top student research projects were selected out of hundreds of applications. The Council on Undergraduate Research will also be awarding planetary scientist Lujendra Ojha, with it's CUR Fellows award. Mr. Ojha was a 2011 Posters on the Hill awardee.
