Present your Research

Undergraduate Research Conferences are typically held in the Spring.  This means that abstract submissions and registration deadlines are in the Fall.  Conferences are a great way to communicate your research to other researchers, students, legislators, and others.  In addition, you’ll strengthen your networking and presentation skills by participating.  Students from many different fields are invited to participate in these conferences.

Learn more about NCUR
The National Conferences on Undergraduate Research (NCUR), established in 1987, is dedicated to promoting undergraduate research, scholarship, and creative activity in all fields of study by sponsoring an annual conference for students. Unlike meetings of academic professional organizations, this gathering of young scholars welcomes presenters from all institutions of higher learning and from all corners of the academic curriculum.

Through this annual conference, NCUR creates a unique environment for the celebration and promotion of undergraduate student achievement, provides models of exemplary research and scholarship, and helps to improve the state of undergraduate education.

NCUR has become a major annual event drawing more than 2,000 undergraduates, faculty and administrators to hear and discuss undergraduate creative and scholarly work.

Getting Funding

The Office of Research and Graduate Studies will provide funding for students presenting at NCUR. Funding includes the cost of conference registration ($180) and accommodations (we have arranged for hotel lodging), all other costs are the responsibility of the student-presenters.

For undergraduates, there are two additional sources for funding undergraduate travel:

  • The Utah State University Student Association has the Academic Opportunity Fund
  • The Honors Research Fund (for honors students) is designed to give Honors students access to direct funding for activities that will academically enhance their undergraduate experience. Students may apply for awards from $50 to $400, and applications will be considered on a rolling basis during the academic year only. Only active Honors students on track to graduate with Honors are eligible to apply.
