Undergraduate students from any University of Michigan campus are eligible to participate. Projects can be in any format or medium such as a paper, website, audio/video documentary or an art installation. Individuals and teams from any discipline may apply.

For individuals, we offer several award categories: 

  • Maize Awards for single term papers (1st place, 2nd place, 3rd place)
  • Blue Awards for multi-term papers (1st place, 2nd place, 3rd place)
  • First-Year Research Projects (1st place, 2nd place, 3rd place)
  • Innovation and Creative Projects Award (1st place, 2nd place, 3rd place)

All team submissions compete in our Team Project category. Additionally, we award up to two Global Awards each year.
