Posters on the Hill

Each Spring the Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR) hosts an annual undergraduate poster session on Capitol Hill. This event helps members of Congress understand the importance of undergraduate research by talking directly with the students whom these programs impact. Applications open annually the first week of September and are generally due between mid-October and mid-November.
