Library Undergraduate Research Award 2020 - Call for submissions

The Library is delighted to announce our continuing series of four awards available to any undergraduate student at Laurier.

The awards will be given to recognize undergraduate students who demonstrate exceptional use of library resources as part of their regular coursework. More specific details are available at:

  • Two awards, a first and second place are available to any first or second year student, and another two (first and second place) to any student 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.

Academic work must have been completed the calendar year prior to nomination, for example, to be considered for the 2021 award, only work submitted in 2020 will be considered. After the deadline, nominators will be contacted to supply supporting materials including the students’ coursework.

We invite Laurier faculty to nominate any undergraduate student by February 12, 2021, here. Each Laurier faculty member is welcome to nominate up to four undergraduates, two for the Junior award and two for the Senior award.
