U-M Library Annual Undergraduate Research Award

Each year, the U-M Library conducts a research award competition to recognize and celebrate the extraordinary academic achievements of our undergraduate students. The award is given to students who demonstrate excellence in library research conducted in support of an undergraduate student project.
Undergraduate students from any U-M campus are eligible to participate. Projects can be in any format or medium such as a term paper, thesis, website, a documentary or an art installation. Individuals and groups from any discipline may apply.
The U-M Library offers several different awards:
- Maize Awards for single term projects (1st place, 2nd place, 3rd place, and Global)
- Blue Awards for multi-term projects (1st place, 2nd place, 3rd place, and Global)
- The Outstanding First-Year Research Project Award
