Still Time to Submit Undergrad Research Award

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. 

How to Apply

Application for the Brookens Library Undergraduate Research Award is a two-step process:

Step 1) Fill out the online application form 

Step 2) One of the Brookens Librarians will contact you to arrange for you to electronically submit your materials using Box.

Undergraduate Research Award

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.
