Each year UNLV Libraries’ Calvert Award for Undergraduate Research recognizes excellence in undergraduate research projects. Winners demonstrate sophistication and originality in research projects, and demonstrate evidence of significant library exploration and understanding of the research project itself. Up to four prizes will be awarded in two categories at the award reception: Seniors will be eligible for a $1,000 prize; freshmen, sophomores and juniors will be eligible for a $750 prize.
Previous winners have researched topics ranging from engineering and political science to history and psychology. Students of any discipline and at any point in their undergraduate careers, may apply for the award.
Funding for the Calvert Award for Undergraduate Research is made possible by Lance and Elena Calvert.
