The Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR) is seeking input following the release of President Trump's budget - one which CUR has already publicly opposed. Members are being asked to identify where the budget cuts will affect them, and their labs, the most. Addtionally, members are encouraged to highlight success stories of undergraduate research. Submit comments to cur[at]cur.org, and include "2018 Federal Budget Impacts" in the subject line.
