Posters On The Hill

Every spring, the Council on Undergraduate Research holds a poster session at Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. The event is highly selective and researchers’ submissions are judged by a national panel of experts in that field. Only the best candidates are chosen to present at Posters On The Hill (POTH).

Utah State University is a CUR Institutional Member, so any student from USU can apply to present at POTH. In order to apply, you would need to prepare the following information:

  • The lead student submitter information (such as name, institution, degree, etc.)
  • Additional co-Author information
  • Advisor information (including contact information)
  • Qualifications
    • Biographical Information (such as a CV)
    • Presentation Experience
    • Letter of Recommendation
  • Your research (Poster, Abstract, Significance, etc.)
  • Funding used for research
  • Notification Information (Neil Abercrombie, Government Relations)

If you are interested in applying, the Office of Research can help you compile, organize, structure, and submit your applications materials. Let us know if you are considering POTH as a possibility.
