Dear undergraduate students, did you work on a stellar research paper or digital project this academic year? If your answer is yes, please consider submitting it for the Elizabeth Long Atwood Award. The Woodruff Library is again sponsoring an award for undergraduate research. A panel of faculty and librarians will award up to three prizes of $1,000 each to those undergraduate students who 1) use the Woodruff Library’s collections and research resources in their original papers or digital projects; and 2) show evidence of critical analysis in their research skills (i.e., locating, selecting, evaluating, and synthesizing information). You are encouraged to submit projects in all media. Information about last year’s winners is available online.

To be eligible to win, applicants must:

  • be current Emory College undergraduates at any class level and in any discipline (humanities, sciences, or social sciences);
  • have completed their research project in the form of a paper, digital project, or poster since March 1 of the preceding year for an Emory University credit course; and
  • allow library staff to display their research project for public viewing following receipt of the Undergraduate Research Award.

For more information, please check out our website. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Jennifer Elder, the chair of the award committee and the Social Science Team Leader. The application deadline is Friday, March 25, 2022, at 11:59 p.m., just before midnight. This award is made possible by the Elizabeth Long Atwood Fund.
