OSR to Support Student Trip to DC

Students interested in presenting their research to members of Congress in Washington, D.C., can get financial support through Truman’s Office of Student Research (OSR).

Every year, the Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR) hosts a poster session highlighting undergraduate research to members of Congress. CUR chooses only two students from each state to attend the conference. The OSR will pay for travel for any student that is selected.

Information about how to apply to present research in Washington is available at cur.org/conferences_and_events/student_events/posters_on_the_hill_information_for_submission. Students should also submit a copy of their application to the OSR at osr@truman.edu. Competitive applications will demonstrate accessibility of the research to a non-specialist and excellent communication skills. The submission deadline is Nov. 1.

Questions about the application process can be directed to Joe Visker, OSR Steering Committee member, at jvisker@truman.edu.
