Capitol Hill with students

Each spring, the Council on Undergraduate Research hosts an annual undergraduate poster session on Capitol Hill - in Washington, DC. This event showcases 60 undergraduate students from campuses across the United states.

At this event and its related activities, members of Congress and their staff members learn about the importance of undergraduate research through talking directly with the student researchers involved in these programs.

We encourage undergraduates from all disciplines who have been significantly involved in research either with their own project or through meaningful involvement with an ongoing faculty project.


To qualify for participation in this event, participants must meet the following criteria:

  • Students must be enrolled undergraduates at NKU during the 2021-2022 academic year.
  • Research projects must represent a significant investment of time by the student outside of normal course requirements and class projects.
  • Research projects must follow the methodology of the appropriate academic discipline.
  • The research project must be of sufficient quality to be presented at a professional academic meeting.
