February 2021 

Library Research Award for Undergraduates

What is the Library Research Award? 

The UW Library Research Award for Undergraduates recognizes outstanding research projects, in all formats, created by undergraduate students. Grand Prize winners receive $1,000 and University-wide recognition for their outstanding accomplishment. Honorable Mention winners receive $500. The three categories are: Lower-division (90 college credits, or less), Upper-Division Non-Thesis, and Upper-Division Thesis. 

This year’s application deadline is May 3rd, 2021, 11:59PM.

SPECIAL FOR 2021: Because of last year’s Research Award cancellation, we are expanding the eligibility window for student projects to include last academic year. Students can submit projects created for courses from Spring 2019 to Spring 2021.
