UGA Libraries Undergraduate Research Award
As a pilot project in the spring of 2007 (see related article in this issue), the UGA Libraries offered seven cash prizes to CURO undergraduates for excellence in research and academic inquiry. We would like to offer this opportunity to all UGA undergraduates and a gift to this project would help us reach more students while raising the UGA Libraries' profile on campus as collaborative partners in research and scholarship. If you would like to make a larger gift in support of this project, an endowment can be created and the award renamed in honor or in memory of someone special. Cost: $1,000 to $5,000.
