The ULRP recognizes and rewards students who demonstrate a strategic and effective use of the Library as a resource, in direct support of research undertaken on campus. In order to qualify for the prize, students must be nominated by faculty members and present their project at a UC San Diego-sponsored, research-focused event. These events include, but are not limited to, the Conference for Research in the Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities (CRASSH), the Faculty Mentor Program, the Summer Research Program and the Undergraduate Research Conference (URC). Additionally, the research should be conducted under the guidance of a faculty member. Each winner will receive $1,000 as a part of the program.
The ULRP is co-sponsored by the UC San Diego Library, UC San Diego Alumni and the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs. Visit the Undergraduate Library Research Prize information page for additional information.
