CUR, in collaboration with ACS, hosts the annual Posters on the Hill to showcase the work of undergraduate researchers from across the country. The event is highly selective—institutions’ most talented researchers are judged by a national panel of experts in their fields—and only the best teams are chosen for the poster session on Capitol Hill. These undergraduates share their research with Members of Congress, congressional staff, federal government officials, academics, and others, demonstrating the value of federal investment in undergraduate research.

Any undergraduate student enrolled in an accredited, not-for-profit Tennessee college, university, or community college who has completed a mentored research, service learning project, or a study abroad experience is eligible to present at TELS. The event is open to anyone to register and attend. This includes other undergraduate students, graduate students, faculty, and staff from Tennessee or outside Tennessee. TELS is an interdisciplinary symposium. One of its most positive aspects is the cross-platform exposure to research, creative activity, service learning, or study abroad experiences centered on themes of interest. To highlight the interdisciplinary focus, each oral and poster session will be organized around these themes: Culture, Heritage & the Creative Economy, Business & Enterprise, Governance & Society, Sustainability, Agriculture & the Environment, Improving Lives and Communities, Logic and Reasoning, and Science, Technology & Society.
