Poster-on-the-Hill competition for Undergraduate Students

In the Spring of 2014 the Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR) will host its 18th annual undergraduate poster session on Capitol Hill.  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 undergraduate research programs. Further information about this event and submission details can be found here: http://www.cur.org/conferences_and_events/student_events/posters_on_the_hill_call_for_abstracts/
ODU is a current institutional member of CUR. 
 
CUR invites undergraduate students to submit an abstract for the 18th Annual Posters on the Hill. The research should represent one of CUR’s Divisions (Arts and Humanities, Biology, Chemistry, Geosciences, Health Sciences, Mathematics/Computer Science, Physics/Astronomy, Psychology, and Social Sciences). Abstract submissions should describe the research, scholarship, or creative activity and discuss its significance to society (i.e. what larger issues or problems were you trying address or understand?; how does your work relate to current policy issues?). 
 
Faculty - Please encourage your undergraduate students to apply.
