The National Conferences on Undergraduate Research (NCUR), established in 1987, is dedicated to promoting undergraduate research, scholarship, and creative activity in all fields of study by sponsoring an annual conference for students. Unlike meetings of academic professional organizations, this gathering of young scholars welcomes presenters from all institutions of higher learning and from all corners of the academic curriculum. Through this annual conference, NCUR creates a unique environment for the celebration and promotion of undergraduate student achievement, provides models of exemplary research and scholarship, and helps to improve the state of undergraduate education.

Since 2012, GeoCUR has partnered with the American Geophysical Union (AGU) to host poster sessions at the AGU Fall Meeting with the lead author and presenter as an undergraduate researcher. Visit the AGU Undergraduate Students page to learn more. AGU also organizes a Virtual Poster Showcase multiple times a year that allows students to present their work in an online environment that is peer-reviewed by other students and professionals. Visit the Virtual Poster Showcase page to learn more.

From March through May, the Geological Society of America (GSA) Sections have their annual meetings. Most of the section meetings have a poster session organized by GeoCUR just for undergraduate student presenters. Visit the GSA Geographic Sections page to learn more about the sections and their meetings.
