The UAH Honors College in cooperation with The Office of Academic Affairs is glad to announce the sponsorship of a fully-funded Travel Award opportunity for 10 current UAH undergraduate students to present their research at this year’s National Conference on Undergraduate Research. The conference will be held at Kennesaw State University in Kennesaw, Georgia (approximately 4-hour drive from UAH) from Wednesday, April 10 to Saturday, April 13, 2019. The Travel Award will cover registration, hotel and transportation. Miscellaneous costs must be covered by the student.

NCUR is an annual student conference dedicated to promoting undergraduate research, scholarship, and creative activity in all fields of study. The conference will bring together more than 4,000 undergraduate researchers and their faculty mentors.

Young scholars from institutions of higher learning from all corners of the academic curriculum and their mentors attend the three-day conference, which offers a unique environment for the celebration and promotion of undergraduate student achievement. It provides models of exemplary research and scholarship and helps to improve the state of undergraduate education.
