The Award




What: This is the annual undergraduate research award, for the recognition of exemplary student research projects completed in Hollins courses. These research projects will showcase extensive and creative usage of the library’s resources; the ability to synthesize those resources in completing the project; and growth in the student’s research skills.

Who: All current Hollins undergraduate students are eligible. There will be two (2) awards given: one for a first year/sophomore, and the second for a junior/senior.

When: All applications will be due on February 28, 2014. Finalists will be announced in late March 2014, and the winners will be recognized at a reception in April 2014 in the Hollins Room.

How: Choose a research project (paper; podcast; website; etc.) that you completed for a Hollins course or independent study during the three previous semesters, and J-Terms (J-Term 2014; Fall 2013; Spring 2013; J-Term 2013; Fall 2012). You will need to have a faculty member (your class instructor; if the class instructor is unavailable, an advisor would be acceptable) agree to sponsor you for the award. As part of the application, you must write a 250-500 word essay explaining your project and the research you completed.

Why should I apply?: Because this is an awesome opportunity to show off your great work, and get rewarded for all the time you spent researching! As if that wasn't enough, each winner will also receive:

  • $250
  • publication/archiving of your work on the library's website and in the library's archives
  • an excellent item to put on your resume or grad school application
  • the warm fuzzy feeling of recognition by peers and faculty
