Faculty Asked to Nominate Outstanding Undergraduate Research Projects Completed in Spring 2014

Each year through its Undergraduate Research Awards program, the UO Libraries recognizes UO students who complete outstanding research projects using library resources and services. Students can earn up to $1,500 for their award-winning papers, projects, and theses.

Faculty members whose students have produced high-quality research papers or projects using library resources are encouraged to nominate students they believe warrant consideration for an award.

The deadline for nomination and submission of papers, projects, and theses produced during spring term 2014 is July 28, 2014.

Awards are given in two categories:

  • Papers and projects from a 300-level course or above and completed within a single term.
  • Theses or projects developed over more than a single term.

To recommend a student's work, visit and complete the recommendation form and recommendation letter. E-mail them to If you have questions, call Barbara Jenkins, the library's director of instruction and campus partnerships, at 541-346-1925, or e-mail her at

Previous winners are profiled here. Winning projects are also deposited in Scholars' Bank here. Scholars' Bank is the UO's online repository of the intellectual output of the university's faculty, students, and staff.

The Undergraduate Research Awards are made possible through the generous support of Jon and Lisa Stine, the Milton C. and Barbara B. Sparks Endowment, and Walter and Gretchen Barger.
