The Bankier Library Research Awards were created to recognize excellence and critical thinking in all stages of the research process, from topic and research question development to finding background sources; from developing and modifying search strategies to evaluating and selecting sources; from integrating sources responsibly to creating a list of references or works cited.

Awards are presented to students whose papers/projects, bibliographies, and process essays show use of the Bankier Library’s resources and collections and evidence of research excellence.  Please review the Selection Criteria page for more detailed information.

Deadline is March 3, 2017, but submissions for the Spring 2016, Summer 2016, and Fall 2016 semesters will be accepted on a rolling basis.
