As the academic year winds down, don’t forget about the Excellence in Research Award, sponsored by the University Libraries. If you have written and researched an excellent paper this year, please consider applying. This award recognizes and rewards Willamette undergraduate students in any discipline who demonstrate outstanding research using library and information resources in writing a paper.
Papers written in the sophomore or junior year as part of regular class work are eligible to be considered for this award. The paper must be 7 pages or more in length and written in the current academic year (fall 2022/spring 2023). Up to two awards of $500 each are available. Please note: papers done as a senior project but in the junior year are excluded and group projects are also ineligible.
Papers and a one-page description of your research process need to be submitted by May 12, 2023 at 5:00 pm. The faculty mentor who worked with you during the production of the paper is asked to submit a statement of support and a copy of the assignment. For complete details and instructions see the Excellence in Research Award page.
Get your application in soon — $500 could help pay for your textbooks next fall!
