Posters on the Hill

The Council on Undergraduate Research regrets to inform you that we have canceled Posters on the Hill, originally set to take place April 20-21, 2020. After much consideration, it is within the community’s best interest, the health of attendees, and to our national office staff, that we do not proceed with our scheduled event and remain compliant to the guidelines of the District of Columbia Department of Public Health, CDC, and WHO at this time.


National Conference on Undergraduate Research

As of March 11, 2020, Montana State University, in conjunction with the Council on Undergraduate Research, regretfully has canceled the National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR) to have taken place on March 26-28, 2020. In working with local and state COVID-19 task forces, we take this step out of an abundance of caution. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

For registrants and graduate fair representatives who withdrew their registrations prior to the event cancellation on March 11, the registration fee will be refunded after the $50.00 cancellation fee is assessed in accordance with the refund policy states on the NCUR 2020 website. 

For registrants and graduate fair representatives whose registration was voided by the cancellation of the event, a full refund will be provided. Fees paid for excursions through the "Extras Store" will be refunded in full. Refunds will be processed within approximately two weeks.

For additional questions and information, please refer to the NCUR 2020 website.
