Brookens Library is excited to announce our fifth annual Undergraduate Research Award!
We believe that undergraduate research, scholarly, and creative activities are foundational components of a complete liberal arts education. The Brookens Library Undergraduate Research Award was created by Brookens Library to recognize and reward UIS undergraduate students whose academic work incorporates the use of Brookens Library’s collections and services and demonstrates exceptional information literacy skills.
In addition to recognition at UIS, the award includes a monetary prize of $250 for first place, $100 for second place, and $50 for third place. The winners will be presented at the Student Technology, Arts & Research Symposium luncheon on April 19, 2019.
For the previous four years, UIS students have submitted some truly amazing work to the Research Award. As we open up submission forms for this year’s award, we look forward to seeing even more of our UIS students’ excellent work.
