NCUR 2023 Conference

Thursday, April 13, 2023 - Saturday, April 15, 2023, at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.

OUR plans to support ten UWF students attending NCUR 2023. To attend NCUR 2023, UWF Students must apply and have their abstract accepted by NCUR and must apply and have their applications accepted by OUR. 

OUR cannot guarantee funding for all UWF students accepted to NCUR 2023. 

Students who receive an NCUR Travel Award ARE NOT eligible for another OUR Travel Award this academic year. If you have already received an OUR Travel Award or plan to apply for a Travel Award for the 2022-23 academic year, you are not eligible to apply for NCUR 2023.

Priority will be given to undergraduate students with no previous conference experience and to those that would not normally present at NCUR. OUR also plans to have a representation from across various campus departments.

If you are not selected for NCUR 2023, OUR will help support your attendance at another conference.

The deadline to submit your abstract to NCUR and to apply to OUR for funding is Nov 30, 2022.
