UWRF UG Scholars meet to plan for NCUR 2010 travel!
On Wednesday, February 16th approximately 50 of the 62 students who had abstracts accepted for NCUR 2010 met in the Blue Lab to register for the conference and discuss travel arrangements. Students were assisted by travel and funding organizers, Dr. Bill Campbell (UWRF Grants Director) and Dr. Tim Lyden (UWRF SURSCA Faculty Adviser). In addition to registering, students were also briefed on the SURSCA-administered Falcon Grants program and walked through the application forms required of all grant recipient/travelers. Other topics covered included general information about NCUR meetings and the importance of professionalism at major meetings like this one. Students learned that NCUR represents a significant professional networking opportunity with large contingents of graduate school recruiters and faculty/administrators from across the nation. NCUR 2010 will take place April 15-18, 2010 in Missoula, Montana. Stay tuned for more details and student profiles as the date approaches.
