Abstract Submissions Due MONDAY for NCUR 2021 Virtual Conference

Abstract submissions are approaching quickly this year. They are due by November 1, 2020.

The Council on Undergraduate Research is excited to announce that the National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR) will be held virtually on April 12 –14, 2021. NCUR is dedicated to promoting undergraduate research, scholarship, and creative activity in all fields of study by sponsoring an annual conference for students. Unlike meetings of academic professional organizations, this gathering of student scholars welcomes presenters from all institutions of higher learning across all disciplines.

We are pleased to announce that President Macpherson and Provost Heyning are enthusiastically supporting the registration costs of a student cohort, with accepted projects for presentation, to virtually attend and present at NCUR 2021.

Through the NCUR Fellow program, we want to:

• Ensure departmental faculty engagement in the NCUR Fellow process

• Achieve early submission of student abstracts to ensure as many Brockport students as possible are presenting at NCUR 2021.


1. Identify significant student research projects

2. Encourage student applications to the NCUR Fellow Program

3. Review student abstracts prior to submission to the NCUR 2021 website

(If desired, prior to submission, abstract drafts may be emailed to Professor Markus Hoffmann for review and feedback.)


1. Submit their own abstracts by  November 1, 2020. This is the NCUR deadline for abstracts to have access to the Early Decision registration rates. Submissions received after this deadline will only be eligible for the Early Decision registration fee cost. The difference in registration cost will be the responsibility of the student or the department which the student represents.

2. Submit applications for a Brockport NCUR Fellowship to the NCUR Campus Committee via online application in MachForm by December 6, 2020.

3. Pledge their commitment with a signed NCUR 2021 Commitment Statement available in the MachForm application.

4. Register for the conference during a virtual 7 am mandatory meeting. Pending the time frame by which NCUR will have completed their Early Decision process, the mandatory meeting will be held before the December 31 early registration deadline, tentatively right after finals week, Monday, December 21.

Additional Notes:

• If more students are accepted than the College can financially support, students who have attended NCUR before will be given lower priority and NCUR 2021 fellowships will be determined by fellowship application date/time order. (First come, first served.)

• Any student who did not submit an NCUR Fellow application online will not be eligible for financial support through the Fellows Program.
