All undergraduate students enrolled in North Carolina colleges, universities, or community colleges and high school students who have completed a mentored research project through an accredited university, other Summer Ventures or research program are eligible to participate in SNCURCS.

All North Carolina undergraduate sophomores are also eligible to apply for a Barthalmus Research Grant to fund an ongoing research project.

A Note on High School Students

NC high school students from Summer Ventures and other summer research programs at college degree-granting institutions and other dual-enrollment students may be able to attend SNCURCS and present research or creative works.

In accordance with Duke University’s policies regarding minors on campus, participating high school students are required to be chaperoned by a parent or guardian on the day of the event. Plans for a chaperone should be in place prior to submitting an abstract and registering for SNCURCS.
