The UW-Madison Libraries are offering an Undergraduate Research Award to support and celebrate excellence in undergraduate, library-based research. Undergraduate students who intend to make creative and intensive use of library resources as part of a semester or year-long research project (capstone, independent study, thesis, performance, exhibit, etc.) during the 2020-21 academic year are encouraged to apply.
The selected student will receive $2,000, upon completion of the following requirements –
Note: The Undergraduate Research Award team will be flexible with the award requirements during the 2020-21 academic year. While all four requirements will still have to be met to receive the full award, remote meetings and other remote activities will be arranged where appropriate.
The award will be distributed in two payments. The first payment of $1,000 will be distributed after acceptance into the award program and successful completion of Requirement 1. The second and final payment of $1,000 will be distributed after successful completion of Requirements 2, 3 & 4 within the same academic year as the project.
Interested students can complete an application here. Applications are due Monday, June 22, 2020.
