Apply for the Undergraduate Research Prize!
The Leatherby Libraries is happy to announce that the Leatherby Libraries Kevin and Tam Ross Undergraduate Research Prize competition is now open. The annual prize honors the top three students whose expert use of the Leatherby Libraries’ services, resources, librarians, or collections led to the creation of a scholarly or creative project. Whether it was a research paper, literature review, lab report, film, or artistic piece, we want to know how you used the Library. If you are one of the top three, you will receive a certificate of achievement and a cash prize, be honored at an awards ceremony in May 2015, have your accomplishment recognized on the Library’s website, and be eligible to have your project published in the Chapman University Digital Commons. We are looking for students from any major and at any level. The project may be in progress at the time of entry, or it might be one that you completed last summer or fall.
