CEU22 Application Instructions

Students who have already presented their project at a CEU poster session or with advanced projects are encouraged to submit an abstract for a DNP oral presentation in the undergraduate session category no. 17 on the DNP submission form. (Note: Students who wish to present an oral presentation in their topical session must submit their APS abstract by July 01). Funding for undergraduates with oral presentations will be considered as funding and space permits. Please fill out the CEU application (closed) and indicate you submitted an oral abstract. 

Priority may be given to junior and senior students and those who have not previously attended a CEU conference.

Please submit your poster/oral abstract to the APS before filling out the CEU Application. Your application is not complete until you have filled out both the APS abstract and the CEU application. More information can be found under "Forms" in the menu.

Target Date:  All application materials must be received by Tuesday, August 2, 2022 (5 pm Eastern Time). Complete applications (including both CEU application and APS abstract) submitted by this date will receive full consideration. However, we will continue to accept applications until all positions are filled. 

  • All undergraduate students are welcome to attend CEU events, however, only students accepted into the CEU program will present at the CEU poster session. If your abstract is not accepted into the poster session there will be an option to convert your abstract into an oral presentation in the special undergraduate oral session.
  • You should register with the link emailed to your account on file.  Do not register with the link on the DNP website.

CEU22 Eligibility

If you have a research project in nuclear science and are enrolled as an undergraduate student in the fall 2022 semester you are welcome to apply for admission into the CEU program. At this time, funding is only awarded to students who are enrolled in a US institution of higher education even if the research presented was conducted outside of the US.
