Nothing more effectively demonstrates the
value of undergraduate research than the words and stories of the
student participants themselves. In the Spring of 2010 the
Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR) hosted its 14 th annual
undergraduate poster session on Capitol Hill. This
eventhelpedmembers of Congress understand the
importance of undergraduate research by talking directly with the
students whom these programs impact.
