On behalf of the Harvard College Undergraduate Research Association (HCURA) we would like to extend an invitation to undergraduate students at West Virginia University to attend the National Collegiate Research Conference (NCRC) held at Harvard University on January 24-26, 2020.
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), Harold Varmus (former director of NIH and Nobel Prize Laureate), Gina McCarthy (former Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency), Stephen Wolfram (founder and CEO of Wolfram Research), Vivek Murthy (Former Surgeon General) 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 2020 conference.
The application deadline for general applications is December 1st, 2019 (11:59PM EST). The application and further information can be found on our website http://ncrc.hcura.org/.
Thank you for your interest in NCRC.
