Franke GLI Funding



The Council on Undergraduate Research has selected Montana State University to host the 2020 National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR). NCUR is the premier national event for undergraduate researchers, scholars, artists, and performers to showcase their work to an audience of their peers. The conference will run from Thursday, March 26th through Saturday, March 28th and will include ten poster sessions, dozens of oral sessions, performances, gallery exhibitions, plenary speakers, graduate school fairs, workshops and social events.

In order to present at NCUR students must submit an abstract and have it selected. The National Council on Undergraduate Research sets the abstract selection guidelines. Abstract submission will open 9/30/2019 and close 12/6/2019.

For more information about NCUR, please take a look at their website.
