Learning Through Research

CUR Affiliate Membership for Corporations, Foundations, and Agencies

The Council on Undergraduate Research offers Affiliate Memberships to organizations and institutions that are not colleges and universities---including corporations, foundations, and federal or state agencies---that share in the mission of CUR. 

These organizations receive three individual memberships: one that will receive a hard copy of the CUR scholarly journal Scholarship and Practice of Undergraduate Research (SPUR), and the two additional will receive the e-version. Their names are hot-linked to their own websites if desired. They may submit material to be posted on CUR's website as long as it fits within the not-for-profit, educational mission of CUR.

CUR's Affiliate Membership provides a way for friends of CUR to give support to our mission and to be recognized by our community.  Affiliate Members are invited to present posters or other exhibits at the CUR Conference and selected other meetings.  

CUR also offers other opportunities for Affiliate members such as in-kind memberships and advertising opportunities. To discuss if Affiliate membership is right for your organization, please contact cur@cur.org.
