The Reeves Library Undergraduate Research Award has been created to recognize and encourage the development of information fluency in resource-based research. Each award recipient will be recognized at honors convocation and will receive a monetary prize in the amount of $250.
All Seton Hill undergraduate students may apply for this award. One award will be given to a freshman or sophomore and a second to a junior or senior. Applications will be accepted beginning in January 2017 and the application deadline is midnight on Sunday, March 19, 2017.
Types of research that will be considered: “Collection”-based research (i.e., field/laboratory research, original literary criticism, or creative works will be judged based only on their literature review/discussion sections and not on the portions of the project consisting of original work). Research projects in either traditional (e.g., academic paper) or multimedia (e.g., podcast, website, video, etc.) formats may be submitted. Research projects created during the SP16, FA16, or SP17 semesters will be considered. There is no length requirement for works submitted. One entry will be accepted per student. The student's name should be removed from the body of the project to facilitate blind review.
Each submission must be sponsored by a faculty member. The faculty sponsor may be the instructor who assigned the project, or the student's advisor.
Students must submit:
The project being entered
A completed application form
A brief (250-500 word) introduction to the project and discussion of your research process
