Students, did you write an exceptional research paper this year? Consider submitting it for the Robert F. Munn Library Scholars Award.
This award is presented annually for outstanding research papers in the humanities or social sciences. Winners will be awarded $1,000 and be recognized publicly by the University and the Libraries.
To be eligible, applicants must be a student enrolled at West Virginia University as a full-time undergraduate student in good academic standing; conducted original research using resources from the West Virginia University Libraries; and used this research to produce a paper that reflects individual work, not that of a group or class project.
Completed papers can be submitted anytime during the fall and spring semesters. The deadline is Friday, June 2. Applicants should submit: 1) an electronic copy of their paper; 2) a short reflective memo, no more than 500 words, describing how they used WVU Libraries; 3) an abstract of no more than 100 words.
Email paper, memo, and abstract to the Head of the Libraries’ Office of Curriculum and Instructional Support, Kelly Diamond, Kelly.Diamond@mail.wvu.edu.
