We are soliciting submissions for our Undergraduate Research Award.  This $500 prize is given in recognition of an outstanding undergraduate research project that best demonstrates the ability to locate, select, and synthesize information from scholarly resources and uses those resources in the creation of an original research project in any media. 

Any paper or project completed by an undergraduate in the Spring, Summer, or Fall semesters of 2015 is eligible. Applicants must be enrolled at UNCG in the Spring 2016 semester.  It is open to all undergraduate students.
