Aid Available for Students Interested in 2013 National Undergraduate Research Conference

Students who wish to receive financial support from the University to attend the National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR) should apply for funding by Oct. 26.

The 27th Annual NCUR Conference will take place in La Crosse, Wis., April 11-13. Truman’s Office of Student Research (OSR) is planning to support up to 25 students. A completed application, including an abstract, should be submitted by 11:59 p.m. Oct. 26. A copy of the application can be found at Abstract guidelines can be found at

The OSR will rank the applications and award travel funds to no more than 25 students. Priority will be given to senior students, students who have not previously attended NCUR and students who will not have the opportunity to present their research elsewhere except for Truman’s Student Research Conference. Applicants will be notified whether or not they have been awarded funding via email no later than Nov. 6. 

After a student has secured funding for travel to NCUR 2013, whether through the OSR or from some other source, he or she must submit their abstract to NCUR through the NCUR website by the Dec. 4 deadline. Follow directions on the OSR website to submit an abstract to NCUR.

Abstracts will be reviewed by a panel of faculty at Weber State University, and students will be notified whether their abstract has been accepted by NCUR by Jan. 22. The OSR will contact all students who have been accepted by NCUR to present at the conference in January, and will coordinate registration and travel for the entire Truman group.
