Divisions – Engineering Video Contest

Call for applications

To highlight student research, the CUR Engineering Division has launched the Student Research Video Competition.  Undergraduates share their research videos with the public via the CUR Engineering Division and will also be eligible to be recognized publicly and potentially receive a cash award.

Guidelines for Video Submission

  • Please record yourself discussing the research that you are presenting this year. The video must be no longer than 60 seconds. Visuals are not required but may be helpful.
  • Videos must be posted on Youtube and the setting must be either set to “unlisted” or “public”.


  • Any student presenting research in an engineering discipline and submitting a valid application by April 10, 2023.
  • Monetary awards cannot be sent abroad. International students will receive a certificate only.

Videos will be reviewed based on the following criteria

  • Clarity of Purpose
  • Appropriateness of Methodology
  • Quality of Analysis and/or Interpretation
  • Ability to Present the Research or Creative Activity
  • Organization of the Presented Materials
  • Value of Research or Creative Activity to the Discipline
  • Delivery/ Communication
  • Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion

Congratulations to the following students who were scholarship winners of the CUR Engineering Division Video Competition! Engineering students who presented their research at NCUR (or were accepted to present in the case of 2020) were invited to submit a video to share information about their research, why their research is important to them, and what the experience has meant to them. Winning videos were selected by the Engineering Division.  When available, videos can be viewed by selecting the student’s name.
