Fiorella Vargas


Dear UCSB Students,

My name is Fiorella Vargas and I am a member of the Harvard College Undergraduate Research Association (HCURA).

I would like to follow up on my email from the Spring and extend an invitation to undergraduate students at University of California Santa Barbara to attend HCURA’s National Collegiate Research Conference (NCRC) on January 22-25, 2014.

NCRC is an opportunity for undergraduate researchers to share their work at poster sessions and to give plenary speaker presentations while hearing from leaders in various fields of research. Topics in the sciences, humanities, and interdisciplinary fields are all encouraged. Keynotes include Laurie Santos, Robert Gallo, and Stephen Wolfram. Additionally, we will have a prize pool of over $5,000 that will be awarded to the top poster presentations.

I would appreciate if you could share this invitation with students who you believe will be interested in attending so that they can apply at Additionally, you can find information about the application, travel scholarships, housing, and registration on our website, Thank you for your interest in NCRC - I am happy to answer questions that you or students may have.

Best Regards,

Fiorella Vargas
