The Libraries Student Research Prize
Sponsored by Friends of the Libraries and LTS
The Libraries Student Research Prize recognizes undergraduate student research papers or projects that show excellence in library research, mastery of subject, and strong written communication skills. In addition to recognition at Lehigh, the Prize includes a monetary award of up to $1,000. It is awarded annually. Submissions are accepted between December and mid-January -- watch university announcements for specific dates. The award recipient(s) are announced in March.

- University-wide recognition, including a feature in the university news and a reception for library prize winners.
- Because winning the Library Prize demonstrates that you possess exceptional writing and research skills, it will strengthen your resume or graduate school application.
