Each year, the U-M Library conducts a research award competition to recognize and celebrate the extraordinary academic achievements of our undergraduate students. Awards are given to students who demonstrate excellence in library research conducted in support of an undergraduate student project.

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 for single term papers, multi-term papers, innovative and creative projects, and first-year research. Team projects are also eligible for awards. Additionally, we confer special Global Impact awards.

Awards are evaluated on the strength of the applicants' personal essay, a letter of support, the project itself, and the project bibliography.

Before you submit, be sure to read our very, very, very helpful Tips document.


To apply, you should enter your umich email address, then "sign in" confirming your U-M credentials.
