About the Conference

The 16th University of Maryland National Conference for McNair Scholars and Undergraduate Research  will be held in College Park, Maryland. Approximately 250 individuals participated in the 2014 University of Maryland National Conference for McNair Scholars and Undergraduate Research, and we are excited to once again provide the opportunity for students to present their academic research in a professional environment and to provide the opportunity for staff to participate in professional development activities.
