Library Undergraduate Research Award

Nominations are currently closed for this years' award consideration.

The Library is delighted to announce a new series of four awards available to undergraduate students. The awards will be given to recognize undergraduate students who demonstrate exceptional use of any library's resources as part of their regular coursework.

Two awards, a first and second place are available to any first or second year students, and another two (first and second place) to any students in either their third or fourth year of study. Each first place award will be in the amount of $350, and each second place award is $150.

Faculty members are welcome to nominate undergraduates for this award no later than February 28th, this year. The Library Undergraduate Research Awards Committee (LURAC), made up of 3 librarians and 2 faculty members, will review each nomination and related coursework, and will provide recommendations to the Student Awards Office.

  • Each Laurier faculty member is welcome to nominate up to four undergraduates, two for the Junior award and two for the Senior award.
  • Nominators will be contacted separately via email after February 28, 2017 to provide examples of the work being nominated.
  • Academic work must have been completed the year prior to nomination, for example, to be considered for the 2017 award, only work submitted in 2016 will be considered, and students who have already graduated are still eligible.
