Hofstra University Library
Undergraduate Library Research Award
About the Award
The Hofstra University Library Undergraduate Library Research Award was established in 1997 by the Library faculty to recognize and reward excellence in research and writing by a graduating senior.
All papers are nominated by the faculty member for whom the paper was written, and read carefully by a faculty selection committee. There will be two awards of $500 given from the Provost's Office and the Library. Both winning papers will be published on the University Library ULRA website during the 2013/2014 academic year.
Past winners have come from the Department of Fine Arts, History, Music, Political Science, Speech-Language-Hearing Sciences, Global Studies & Geography, and Psychology.
