$1,000 & Bragging Rights Up for Grabs
Apply for the annual coveted Library Research Prize! There are two $1,000 prizes by the way. One for an undergraduate student (or team) and one for a graduate student (or team).
Apply by April 16th by uploading your research project, bibliography, and an essay about how you utilized library resources and services (more details on our website). Upon submitting your application a link will automatically be sent to the Fairfield University faculty member who oversaw your project so they can provide a support statement. We do recommend letting your professor know that you are applying in advance too. Check the LRP webpage for more eligibility info. There are also links to a FAQ page and info about winners from previous years.
Not done with your research? No problem- you can upload a draft. Want to apply using a project from a previous semester? You can submit a project from a for-credit Fairfield class from Fall 2020, Winter intersession, or Summer 2020 in addition to Spring 2021.
Save the date for the virtual winner's reception on Wednesday, May 5th 2021 from 3-4pm. The entire Fairfield U community is welcome to attend to hear the winner's discuss their research, in addition to remarks from their faculty, the Dean of the Library, and the judging panel.
Thank you to Fairfield University's Charles F. Dolan School of Business, College of Arts & Sciences, Graduate School of Education & Allied Professions, Marion Peckham Egan School of Nursing & Health Studies, and the School of Engineering for their financial support of the prizes, in addition to the Library's financial commitment.
