Excellence in Research Awards

Green check mark and the word excellentIf you are a student and have written and researched an excellent paper, consider submitting your paper for consideration for the Excellence in Research Award.  Faculty, please encourage your best student writers/researchers to apply.

Sponsored by the University Libraries, the Excellence in Research Award recognizes and rewards Willamette undergraduate students in any discipline who demonstrate outstanding research using library and information resources in writing a paper. Up to two awards of $500 each are available.

Student papers written in the sophomore or junior year as part of regular class work are eligible to be considered for this award. The paper must be 7 pages or more in length and written in the current academic year (fall 2022/spring 2023); a separate, one-page description of the research process is also required. The faculty mentor who worked with the student during the production of the paper is asked to submit a statement of support and a copy of the assignment.

Group papers and papers done as a senior project but in the junior year are excluded.  All documents need to be submitted by May 12, 2023 at 5:00 pm.
