The event in intended to help members of Congress understand the importance of undergraduate research by talking directly with the students whom these programs impact.

Any student is eligible to submit an abstract of their research that represents any of CUR’s disciplinary divisions (Arts and Humanities, Health Sciences, Psychology, Social Sciences, Biology, Chemistry, Geosciences, Mathematics/Computer Science, and Physics/Astronomy).
