Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR) Posters on the Hill
Each April, the Council on Undergraduate Research hosts Posters on the Hill (PoH) in Washington, D.C., on Capitol Hill. Approximately 75 students from all over the country are selected on a competitive basis, out of a pool of approximately 700 applicants, to present their research posters to invited guests such as Senators, Congressional Representatives, Congressional Staff, federal agency program officers, and the science press corps. Students have an opportunity to meet with their Representatives, attend field trips, and hear from speakers who are innovators and supporters of undergraduate research.
The Office of Undergraduate Research fully funds any student(s) accepted to present their work at the CUR Posters on the Hill event each year. Staff from the Office of Undergraduate Research will make arrangements for travel, accommodations and meetings for this conference; any student accepted to present should contact the OUR staff upon learning of his/her acceptance to begin the process of registering and planning for the CUR Posters on the Hill conference.
