National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR)

The Office of Undergraduate Research (OUR) offers support for students to present their research or creative work at the NCUR.
Be sure to follow OUR's submission deadlines to be eligible to receive funding.


All currently enrolled students are eligible to apply. Students must have worked with a WSU faculty or staff member who served as a mentor to the project. Undergraduate research projects that include teams of students within or across disciplines are encouraged to apply; however, due to limited funds, only one member of a team can be supported through OUR.
