This juried poster session is open to empirical research by graduate and undergraduate students in any area of science, technology, engineering, or mathematics, and prizes will be awarded for the 1st place, 2nd place, and Honorable Mention posters in the graduate and undergraduate divisions.

2013 Posters on the Hill (POH)

Submission Deadline November 8, 2012

It is increasingly important that the undergraduate research community works to ensure that those in the U.S. Congress who provide funding for research and education have a clear understanding of the programs they fund and why these programs are important. Undergraduate research must be among those programs that members of Congress understand if it is to continue to be supported.
Nothing more effectively demonstrates the value of undergraduate research than the words and stories of the student participants themselves. 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. There will be two student presentation sessions, a luncheon panel and poster session for arts and humanities students, and an evening poster session and reception for science and social sciences students.
