NCUR LogoThe University of Memphis will welcome over 4,000 undergraduate students and faculty to our city April 6–8, 2017 to participate in the National Undergraduate Research Conference (NCUR) on our campus. This will be the largest conference ever hosted by the UofM. These remarkably bright and ambitious students from across the country will present their research findings in fields ranging from Engineering and Chemistry to Psychology and the Arts. This conference will also be an amazing opportunity for UofM students to present their original research and network with other leading researchers and talented undergraduate students. Sponsorship provides support for integrating research and creative endeavors into our undergraduate students' academic experiences.

All NCUR sponsors will receive the following:

  • Pre- and post-conference attendee rosters that may be sorted by area of expertise/interest
  • National recognition in promotional materials
  • Pre- and post-conference recognition in the NCUR materials and NCUR conference website (includes your logo)
