Applications Now Open for National Collegiate Research Conference

October 30th, 2018


The Harvard College Undergraduate Research Association (HCURA) is inviting undergraduate students at Princeton University to attend the National Collegiate Research Conference (NCRC) held at Harvard University on January 24-26, 2019.

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 the 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 the conference. Through NCRC, HCURA hopes 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 they believe will be invaluable in future pursuits.

In the last five years, NCRC has hosted 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), Harold Varmus (former director of NIH and Nobel Prize Laureate), Gina McCarthy (former Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency), and Stephen Wolfram (founder and CEO of Wolfram Research), as well as many other notable individuals in academia, policy, and industry. 

The application deadline for general applications is December 1st, 2018 (11:59PM EST). You can find the application and further information on
