Undergraduate Library Research Prize

The Undergraduate Library Research Prize (ULRP), co-sponsored by the UC San Diego Library, UCSD Alumni and the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs, is awarded to students who demonstrate a strategic and effective use of the UC San Diego Library as a resource in direct support of research undertaken on campus.


Students must be nominated by faculty members and must participate in either the annual UC San Diego Undergraduate Research Conference held in the spring, or in other university programs that foster and recognize student research and scholarship. The Undergraduate Research Conference is one of three major undergraduate scholarly meetings that the Academic Enrichment Programs coordinate each year that afford students from all academic disciplines the opportunity to present findings of research conducted under the guidance of UC San Diego faculty members.
