UWRF Students submit 52 abstracts to NCUR 2010

UWRF Grants Office has been informed that collectively, UWRF students, faculty and administrators have submitted a record number of abstracts to the 2010 National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR). At least 52 submissions were made to present at this year's meeting in Missoula, Montana. Although the abstracts have yet to be reviewed, it is very likely that at least 45 will be accepted. This will exceed the prior record of 42 UWRF students who presented in 2004 at Washington and Lee University in Lexington, Virgina. In addition this year, a very wide range of fields are also represented from the traditional sciences to English and Music as well as many other fields.

To accommodate travel for this large contingent, SURSCA and UWRF plan to charter our own jet from Sun Country Airlines! In addition, we will also be sharing the plane with contingents from other UW campuses as well.

Stay tuned for more updates on this exciting upcoming event/adventure for our students.

  1. This is AMAZING!!! I am so glad to be a part of this exceptional campus. I have been given an oppourtunity that amounts to more than I could have ever dreamed. I am doing research as an undergraduate, and will be attending this conference. I think that this campus here at UWRF has really given me the tools to succeed.
