Submitted on behalf of Robert Sullivan, Associate Professor/Chair, Communication Studies and Faculty in Residence, Center for Faculty Excellence:

As part of Ithaca College’s commitment to undergraduate research, scholarship, and creative activity, support will be provided for approximately 40 student scholars at the National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR) to be held April 7-9, 2016 at the University of North Carolina, Asheville. Transportation, hotel accommodations and registration for the conference will be paid by the College. Students presenting at NCUR are expected to pay only for personal purchases.

Who can apply? Any undergraduate student in any program can apply to present their work. Virtually every discipline is represented at NCUR. Students can also present work that is created in an interdisciplinary posture. Please note, however, that support can typically only be given to one student for work that was prepared with multiple authors. Creative activity, such as musical or theatrical performance, or other work in the fine arts, is also welcome.
