ICRU wants to let you know that next week, April 19-23, is National Undergraduate Research Week. We will be hosting ESURF during the week, an online version of our annual Spring Undergraduate Research Festival.

Throughout the week, ICRU will be releasing (3-5 minute) student presentations videos for ESURF on our social media channels and webpage. There are no live events. They are asking that you spread word in your department so you can watch these presentations, share student videos through your social media channels, and help celebrate our students. Presenters and abstracts can be found HERE.

They are also looking for Commentators to provide constructive and positive feedback to students. More information and registration can be found HERE. This is a very low time-commitment volunteer opportunity and is particularly well-suited to graduate student and post-doctoral researcher CVs.
