The deadline is approching for UNM Undergraduate Students to apply for the newly instated Jim & Mary Lois Hulsman Undergraduate Library Research Award, which specifically recognizes outstanding research efforts of students from all disciplines.

After receiving financial support from long-time library supporters Jim and Mary Lois Hulsman, library staff developed the new award program, which launched in Oct. 2017. It’s designed to recognize excellence in undergraduate research that incorporates use of University Libraries resources and demonstrates sophisticated information literacy skills. 

Student award winners receive a cash prize ($500 for first place, $300 for second place, $200 for third place) and recognition of their outstanding efforts.

There are several upcoming workshop/FAQ sessions for students to learn full details about the program and application process:

All research project formats are welcome, including:

  • Research papers
  • Design portfolios
  • Compositions
  • Posters
  • Film
  • Digital Projects

Projects will be awarded in two categories:

  • Emerging Undergraduate Researchers – for students who have completed work in 100-level and 200-level courses.
  • Advanced Undergraduate Researchers – for students who have completed work in 300-level and above courses.

There is more information on the Hulsman Award homepage, including full Application Requirements and evaluation rubric.

The deadline for submissions is Monday, Feb. 12, 2018.
