Information and criteria for the Undergraduate Research Prize.

Undergraduate Research Prize

For more information,

The Library Undergraduate Research Prize was inaugurated by the Friends of the Wesleyan Library in 2017 to honor excellence in undergraduate research and writing apart from theses.  

Projects will be evaluated based on the use of Wesleyan’s library collections and resources as well as on the quality of writing and research. We are particularly interested in receiving applications that show evidence of learning about research techniques and the information-gathering process itself.

There will be two cash awards: a 1st-place prize worth $500 and a 2nd-place prize worth $250.  

Instructors and library staff are encouraged to nominate students’ work via the online nomination form.

Students may also nominate themselves directly via the application form.

Deadline: February 28, 2020 at 5:00 pm.

Information on the application process is available from this website. Email Jennifer Hadley at with any further questions.
