URC PRINTING REQUIREMENTS

Students presenting at the Paul College URC event are required to have a 32x40 poster (matte or semi-gloss) that is mounted to foam core.  Mounting to foam core is an additional procedure done at the printing services location.  Printing your poster and then gluing/stapling/tacking it to poster board or foam board does not qualify.  Students who do not follow this requirement will not receive the full poster reimbursement. Please see the URC Poster Printing Guide for further information. Students also presenting posters for the Charles & Miriam Nelson Poster Session should follow the guidelines for the Holloway Competition.

URC PRINTING REIMBURSEMENTS

All students presenting at the Paul College URC event will be reimbursed up to $50 towards the cost of printing their required poster. Students must have their posters mounted to foam core (see above) in order to receive full reimbursement.  Students will receive only one $50 reimbursement per team – NOT per team member.

All reimbursements are subject to the student/team presenting at the Paul URC event on Thursday, April 20.  Those students/teams who do not show up to present on the day of the event will not be eligible for the reimbursement.

To receive the reimbursement, all students will be required to submit an ORIGINAL RECEIPT to Sarah Daigle along with an expense report form.  Forms and receipts will only be accepted AFTER the Paul URC event to ensure student participation.  Please contact Sarah Daigle at smj67@unh.edu for further information.
