EIU Pine Honors College

National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR) 2024

NCUR 2024 will be hosted at Long Beach, California on April 8–10, 2024.

EIU wants YOU to present your research or creative work in any discipline at one of these two conferences. We will fund as many students as we can. Depending on the number of applicants, a participation fee may have to be required from students, but we will strive to keep the amount under $100. We want to make off-campus undergraduate research presentations available to as many EIU students as possible. If you are an EIU student who has been engaged in independent study, research, or a capstone creative activity in any discipline, we encourage you to apply for funding. From papers on art, business, or chemistry to work on xenophobia, youth, or Zen Buddhism, all kinds of topics and approaches have a home at NCUR.

Note: You do NOT need to be an Honors student to apply for this funding.

To Apply

Apply for EIU funding by Wednesday, November 15, 2023.

You will need to prepare an abstract detailing the nature of your study/performance, between 250 and 300 words in length (see abstract guidelines here). You should have the faculty mentor who has worked with you on your project review your abstract before you submit it.

Your abstract will be judged for its clear communication of a research conclusion or a performance/creative purpose. The abstract should not assume specialist knowledge on the part of the reviewers, but should concisely describe the goal, method, or approach, as well as the significance of the work undertaken. We may suggest changes to your abstract to improve its chances of acceptance by NCUR.

There is more information about NCUR 2024 online. Note, you should not submit your abstract to NCUR (Friday, December 8, 2023 deadline) before you have heard back from us about your funding request.

For additional guidance, talk to your faculty mentor or Richard England, Dean of the Pine Honors College. Whatever your discipline, research and creative excellence thrives at EIU, and we want you to share it at NCUR.

If you have questions or technical difficulties, please email
