Since 2002 more than 170 Christ College students have had their undergraduate research selected for presentation at the National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR), the largest, most competitive, and most prestigious venue for undergraduate scholarship in the United States. Generous contributions of alumni and friends to the Christ College Dean's Annual Fund makes possible travel to NCUR conference sites such as Washington D.C., Indianapolis, Asheville N.C., Salt Lake City, and the San Francisco Bay area.
