McNair Scholars Invited to National Conference

NCUR 2021 @ Home

January 25, 2021

Four McNair Scholars, along with four other UNC undergraduate students, have been invited to present at this year's National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR) which is hosted by the Council on Undergraduate Research. Due to the ongoing global pandemic, this conference will not follow its original in-person format and will take place online instead. Unlike other conferences that focus on a specific subject or professional organization, NCUR is dedicated to promoting undergraduate research, scholarship, and creative activity in all fields of study and welcomes presenters from all institutions of higher learning. 

We are excited for these McNair Scholars to represent the University of Northern Colorado:
