Five Students To Be Honored At Calvert Awards Ceremony May 9

Join the University Libraries to celebrate this year's Calvert Award winners at a ceremony on Thursday, May 9 at 5 p.m. in the Goldfield Room at Lied Library.

The Libraries have selected five UNLV undergraduate students as the winners of the 2024 Lance and Elena Calvert Awards for Undergraduate Research. The awards, funded through an endowment established by Lance and Elena Calvert, encourage undergraduate UNLV students to master the art of research to become successful, self-sufficient, lifelong learners.

This year's winners include Fabrizio Ciccone, "Variation in Las Vegas tree diversity based on socioeconomic status"; Nathaniel Valentine, "The Behemoth of the Last Ice Age: The Evolutionary Saga of the Columbian Mammoth in North America"; Rosario Martinez, "The Sun Goes Down in Juárez"; Isabella Aceituno, "Musical Chills: The Impact of Age and Musical Ability"; and Jade Turner, "A Phenomenological Exploration of Intracommunity Attitudinal and Experiential Barriers to the Utilization of Psychotherapeutic Services in BIPOC Populations."

Applicants submit a reflective essay on their research and a letter of support from a faculty member as part of the application process. Winners receive a cash prize and have their work published in Digital Scholarship@UNLV, the institutional repository for university research.

 Register to attend. Refreshments will be provided.
