The University Libraries and the Honors College are collaborating to emphasize both the importance of solid research methods and the use of high-quality information resources in student research projects.

An annual award will recognize Gemstone teams that demonstrate excellence in the research process of finding, evaluating and integrating appropriate scholarly resources in their team research proposal. In addition, this award will recognize student teams that demonstrate excellence in the integration of principles of information literacy and who conduct research with integrity and diligence. The prizes are given to support the completion of the proposed projects.


Annual prize amounts

  • 1st prize: $2000
  • 2nd prize: $1000 each (two prizes awarded)

Funding is provided by Friends of the Libraries to support activities that foster student success.
