Posters on the Hill Deadline has been extended due to Hurricane Sandy

Due to Hurricane SandyThe Deadline for Posters on the Hill
Has Been Extended!

In the Spring of 2013 the Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR) will host its 17th annual undergraduate poster session on Capitol Hill. This event will help members of Congress understand the importance of undergraduate research by talking directly with the students whom these programs impact.

New Deadline for Submission is November 8, 2012.
CUR is calling for students to submit an abstract of their research that represents any of CUR's disciplinary divisions (Arts and Humanities, Biology, Chemistry, Geosciences, Health Sciences, Mathematics/Computer Science, Physics/Astronomy, Psychology, and Social Sciences). In order to ensure proper review of applications, the above are the only disciplines that may apply. Should your research be inter-disciplinary, please select the division that most closely describes your research.

Abstract submissions will only be accepted by using CUR’s on-line submission form. Prior to submitting the form, students should gather the contact information for all co-authors, advisors and sponsors (if applicable), prepare a short vitae/resume, and poster abstract. Be sure to include your home Congressional district in your application.

A document listing the information required for submission can be found by visiting: <>
For more information, and the link to submit an application, please visit: <> .

You will note that CUR requires either the student’s home institution must have an institutional membership, or the faculty mentor or student must have an individual membership.  Please know that GW is indeed an institutional member of CUR. 
Please be sure that both portions (the electronic application and the electronic recommendation letter) are submitted by November 8, 2012.
