State of North Carolina Undergraduate Research and Creativity Symposium (SNCURCS) 2018

The Office of Student Research would like to personally invite you and your students to submit abstracts of research and creative endeavors (performance, plays, readings, exhibits, displays, etc.) for presentation at the 2018 State of North Carolina Undergraduate Research and Creativity Symposium (SNCURCS) to be held at North Carolina State University on Saturday, November 10, 2018.

It is my hope that the Faculty and students at ASU will be well represented at this prestigious scholarly event. The call for abstracts will run through October 19, 2018. Faculty Mentors must approve the abstract for its final acceptance at this event.

To submit an abstract or for more information please visit http://www.sncurcs.org.

If students are interested in funding to assist with the cost of presenting at this event, they MUST apply for OSR travel grants for SNCURCS by the October 15 monthly deadline. OSR can reimburse students for dinner on Friday night if staying overnight (breakfast and lunch on Saturday are provided by the conference host), private car mileage if the student is driving (you cannot claim mileage if you are riding with someone else or in a provided van) and the $35.00 registration fee. Students must register on their own and pay individually – do NOT select the group option when registering. Lodging is being provided by NC State University for all accepted ASU presenters. NC State is organizing the lodging and students interested in this option will need to note this on their Registration and follow the instructions sent via an email by the conference hosts at NC State. In addition, details regarding Registration and how to request housing is also provided on the SNCURCS website. As a result, no lodging can be claimed on an OSR Travel grant application.

Please click here for the OSR Travel grant homepage http://osr.appstate.edu/apply/osr-travel-grants. You must have a completed online OSR Travel grant AND Faculty Recommendation letter submitted to OSR by October 15 to be eligible for funding.
