National Collegiate Research Conference 2017
On behalf of the Harvard College Undergraduate Research Association (HCURA) I would like to extend an invitation to undergraduate students at Princeton University to attend the National Collegiate Research Conference (NCRC) held at Harvard University on January 19-21, 2017. NCRC is a large-scale, multidisciplinary forum held annually at Harvard University, where the most accomplished undergraduate students from across the United States and internationally convene each year to share their research in the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences. The core vision behind our conference is to provide student researchers with the opportunity to hear from the world’s leading authorities in academia, policy, and industry, as well as to foster important exchanges and dialogue between students. Last year, after being selected through a competitive application process, over 200 participants from nearly 75 universities across America and abroad attended our conference. Through NCRC, we hope to expand the perspective of undergraduate researchers through offering exposure to diverse fields and to facilitate the discourse on collaboration, leadership, and social impact in research that we believe will be invaluable in future pursuits.
In the last five years, we have been honored to host speakers including Marcia K. McNutt (President of the National Academy of Sciences and former Editor-in-Chief of Science), Jeffrey D. Sachs (American economist and Director of the Earth Institute at Columbia), Steven Pinker (psychologist and popular science author), Robert S. Langer (chemical engineer, entrepreneur, and most cited engineer in history), and Stephen Wolfram (founder and CEO of Wolfram Research), as well as many other notable individuals in academia, policy, and industry. We are anticipating expanding the reach of NCRC to even greater heights for our upcoming 2017 conference.
I would appreciate if you could share this invitation (included below) with students who you believe will be interested in attending. The application deadline for general applications is November 28th, 2016 (11:59PM EST). You can find the application and further information our website http://ncrc.hcura.org/.
