Call for submissions! Undergraduate Sustainability Research Award

Deadline: February 22, 2019



All currently enrolled undergraduate UMass Amherst students, part or full-time, are eligible. Submit your project here.

Papers, theses, design and multimedia projects, and art that present research of a sustainability topic (environmental, social, and/or economic) will be accepted. The first prize recipient will receive a $1,500 scholarship, and two second place winners will receive $750 scholarships. Winners will be honored at a spring sustainability event in the UMass Amherst Libraries.

Applicants must be nominated by a UMass Amherst faculty member. Projects created from spring 2018 through fall 2018 may be submitted for review.

The award promotes an in-depth understanding of sustainability topics, research strategies, and the use of library resources, providing participating students with vital skills they will carry into future academic and vocational endeavors.  The award is funded by the UMass Amherst Libraries’ national award-winning Sustainability Fund.

Winners of previous awards are accessible in the Sustainability Student Showcase on ScholarWorks, the University’s digital repository.
