Harvard College Undergraduate Research Association (HCURA) extends an invitation to undergraduate students at Princeton University to attend the National Collegiate Research Conference (NCRC) held on January 21-23, 2022. 

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 this 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 300 participants from nearly 100 universities across America and abroad attended the 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. 


While we plan to host NCRC on Harvard’s campus in Cambridge, MA, we are actively monitoring Harvard University’s COVID-19 guidelines and policies and have contingency plans in place to transition to a virtual format if conditions worsen.


Applications will open on October 1st, 2021, and close on December 1st, 2021 (11:59PM EST). 


Thank you for your interest in NCRC and please feel free to contact us at [email protected] if you have any questions.
