HIST 212: The Haitian Revolution (Spring 2024)

Research Prize

Every year, the W&M Libraries offer Libraries Undergraduate Research Awards.

The Undergraduate Library Research Awards recognize creative and original library research completed by William & Mary undergraduate students. Prizes will be given to the students whose papers best illustrate exemplary use of W&M Libraries tools and resources, and the development of information-gathering skills. 

The four awards will be granted in two categories (freshman/sophomore and junior/senior). First prize winners in category will each receive $750, and second prize winners will receive $500.  

Awardees will be asked to deposit their research paper into Scholar Works and meet with library staff to create a short video about their research to be shared on library social media. 

Eligibility (for next round)

Applicants must:

  • Be undergraduates enrolled in a degree program in any discipline at William & Mary.
  • Have completed a research paper for a William & Mary credit course offered during either the Spring 2024, Summer 2024, or Fall 2024 semesters. 
  • Individual and group papers are eligible, but works co-written with faculty are not permissible. Groups with students that cross the categories (ex. freshmen and juniors) will be placed in the junior/senior category.

At this time only written papers and projects are accepted.
