National Collegiate Research Conference (NCRC), 2020

Harvard University
Boston, MA
January 24-26, 2020

NCRC is a large-scale, multidisciplinary forum held annually at Harvard University, where the most accomplished undergraduate students from across the United States and internationally convene each year to share their research in the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences. The core vision behind our conference is to provide student researchers with the opportunity to hear from the world’s leading authorities in academia, policy, and industry, as well as to foster important exchanges and dialogue between students. Last year, after being selected through a competitive application process, over 200 participants from nearly 75 universities across America and abroad attended our conference. Through NCRC, we hope to expand the perspective of undergraduate researchers through offering exposure to diverse fields and to facilitate the discourse on collaboration, leadership, and social impact in research that we believe will be invaluable in future pursuits.

In the last five years, we have been honored to host speakers including Marcia K. McNutt (President of the National Academy of Sciences and former Editor-in-Chief of Science), Jeffrey D. Sachs (American economist and Director of the Earth Institute at Columbia), Harold Varmus (former director of NIH and Nobel Prize Laureate), Gina McCarthy (former Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency), Stephen Wolfram (founder and CEO of Wolfram Research), Vivek Murthy (Former Surgeion General) as well as many other notable individuals in academia, policy, and industry. We are anticipating expanding the reach of NCRC to even greater heights for our upcoming 2020 conference.We would appreciate if you could share this invitation with students who you believe will be interested in attending. The application deadline for general applications is December 1st, 2019 (11:59PM EST). You can find the application and further information on our website.
