Library Undergraduate Research Award: Submission Requirements

2018 - 2021 Award Winners


Submission Checklist

These are the materials you must submit to the Review Committee:

- Application form (which includes a short reflective essay on your research process)

- Final paper or project

- Bibliography

- Faculty support letter


Submission Requirements

Two Easy Steps:

* First fill out the online application form available on this page. It includes a 500 to 750 word reflective essay about the research process, the resources used, and what you learned along the way about research. As an alternative, you may submit a research log if you completed one at the time you worked on the project or paper.

* Then send the following materials to the review committee:

  1. The final version of the project: for example a pdf version of a paper or a link to a digital project (must be in English so reviewers can read it)

  2. A complete bibliography of the sources you used, if they are not already included in the paper/project.

  3. A short letter of recommendation from a faculty member. This letter should be sent directly to Sophia Neuhaus. The Library Research Award Rubric on the right side of this page provides some guidelines.


Please send materials to Sophia Neuhaus ( with the subject line "Undergraduate Research Award."
