The University of Michigan Library is using Submittable as a tool for collecting and reviewing applications to various fellowships, award programs, projects proposals, and other applications.

Upcoming Deadlines

We are currently accepting applications for Special Collections fellowships. Applications are due February 1, 2023.

Using Submittable

If you have a umich email address, use it to log in to Submitable. U-M users will be redirected to sign in via the standard U-M login page.

If you do not have a U-M uniqname, you can select one of the other options for creating a Submittable account.

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.
