Posters on the Hill 2016 — Call for Abstracts

Council on Undergraduate Research
Application Period: Sept. 2-Nov. 4, 2015

Note: Middlebury provides travel funds for the faculty and student if accepted to present at Posters on the Hill in DC.

Your research should represent one of CUR’s Divisions (Arts and Humanities, Biology, Chemistry, Engineering, Geosciences, Health Sciences, Mathematics/Computer Science, Physics/Astronomy, Psychology, and Social Sciences)

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 the programs that members of Congress understand if it is to continue to be supported, and to grow.

Students and their faculty mentors are invited to apply for the Council on Undergraduate Research’s (CUR) 20th annual undergraduate poster session on Capitol Hill (in spring of 2016). In addition to other events, there will be an evening poster session and reception where students will have the opportunity to speak directly to members of Congress and demonstrate how they have been impacted by these programs.
