This past February, the Library opened submissions for our fifth annual Undergraduate Research Award. Materials are due on April 1, but there’s still plenty of time to submit your materials to us.
Every semester, we see firsthand the outstanding work UIS students generate. Whether it’s the work we directly help with through our research consultations or the amazing presentations we see at the Student Technology, Arts & Research Symposium, the Library knows firsthand what UIS students are capable of.
That’s why every year since 2015, we’ve offered the Undergraduate Research Award. It’s an opportunity for UIS students to show off what we know they can do, an opportunity to recognize the work of UIS students for their excellence, and an opportunity to preserve that work in the long term.
As a reminder, 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.
