Learn Who We Are
The Harvard College Undergraduate Research Association (HCURA) was founded in 2007 with the mission of building an interdisciplinary research community among undergraduate students, and promoting undergraduate research.
Since our founding, HCURA has been dedicated to providing a platform for student researchers to share their work and research experiences. After several years of hosting local research fairs and symposia, in January 2012 HCURA launched the inaugural National Collegiate Research Conference (NCRC), inviting over 150 students from around the nation to present their research. In the six years since, NCRC has grown to become the largest student-run research research conference in America.
We hope you will join us in our endeavor to promote undergraduate research and share in the scholarship of the 21st century.
All our best,
