Photograph of RJ WoltersRajean (RJ) Wolters, campus NCUR coordinator, in the Office of the Dean for Arts and Humanities, Lubbers 124 (woltersr@hope.edu), coordinates logistics of sending Hope students to NCUR each year.

The process begins in the fall of each year.


  1. Students must submit an initial internal form stating their interest.

  2. Students will submit an online abstract submission to NCUR.

    Hope students should list RJ's name and contact information (woltersr@hope.edunotice the "r" after wolters) on the abstract submission form, so that she will be included on all NCUR notifications. RJ can then assist students who are accepted with paperwork, travel arrangements, hotel reservations and other preparations for their experience at NCUR.

  3. NCUR reviews the abstracts submitted and begins notification to students of being accepted to NCUR in late December/early January.
