Scholarly & Artistic Award for Students

Are you a sophomore or junior working on a scholarly or artistic research project? Will that project be completed by the end of 2016-2017? Do you want to work with an Ames Librarian to bring your research to the next level? Then you should apply for The Ames Library Artistic and Scholarly Research award. This award provides a $500 funding opportunity for a student under the supervision of a faculty sponsor to propose a significant research or creative project in his or her specific field of study.

Ames LogoThe goals of the award program are to increase opportunities for student learning, information literacy, and critical thinking skills through the creation of knowledge; and to foster information literacy skills through the extensive and sophisticated use of the library services, resources and collections, in collaboration with the liaison librarian.

This award program is open to students in all academic disciplines; all forms of undergraduate research and artistic activities are eligible for support, including those that receive academic credit.  Students must have achieved sophomore or junior standing at the time they apply for the award; senior students graduating in May of the application year are not eligible to apply.

The deadline to apply is March 1, and the award is announced at the honors convocation in April. More information and access to the application procedures and cover sheet may be found here.  The Library Advisory Committee makes the selection of the winner.

If you have any questions, contact your librarian.
