Posters on the Hill 2014

Posters on the Hill 2014

Submission Period: September 2 - November 4, 2013

As the undergraduate research community works to ensure that those in the U.S. Congress have a clear understanding of the research and education programs they fund, nothing more effectively demonstrates the value of undergraduate research than a student participant's words, work, and stories.  Undergraduate research must be among those programs that members of Congress understand if it is to continue to be supported.

Event Date: TBD.  The exact dates for Posters on the Hill will be set once the Congressional calendar for spring 2014 is finalized.


Submission Process

Students: The Council on Undergraduate Research invites you to submit an abstract for the 18th Annual Posters on the Hill. Your research should represent one of CUR’s Divisions (Arts and Humanities, Biology, Chemistry, Geosciences, Health Sciences, Mathematics/Computer Science, Physics/Astronomy, Psychology, and Social Sciences). Abstract submissions should describe your research, scholarship, or creative activity and discuss its significance to society (i.e. what larger issues or problems were you trying address or understand?; how does your work relate to current policy issues?).

Advisors: You will receive an email confirmation when your student submits an application.  This email will include directions on how to upload an electronic letter of recommendation.  Please note that the letter must be submitted no later than the deadline of November 4, 2013 and must be on institution letterhead.  Without a letter of recommendation, an application will be considered incomplete and will not be reviewed.  Only one letter of recommendation should be sent, and the signature on the letter must match the name of the advisor listed in the application. Multiple advisors may sign the single letter.
