National Collegiate Research Conference (NCRC)

The National Collegiate Research Conference (NCRC) is a platform for undergraduates from across the nation to share their interest in research. Student researchers have the ability to make meaningful and significant contributions in all fields of study, and students are now not only engaging in research earlier in their careers, but they are also participating in increasing numbers. In light of this positive growth, NCRC has identified the urgent need for a cohesive undergraduate research community.

  • The Nation's Largest Student-Run Research Conference 
  • Over 500 Students from 100+ Universities Around the World
  • World Leaders in Research
