This guide will help you with library research for the Fall/Spring Undergraduate Research Festival (FURF/SURF). Library research involves finding books, articles, and other sources to support your scientific research.
Now accepting applications for Spring 2020!
Deadline: Sunday, April 1, 2020.
Sponsored by the UI Libraries, under direction of the Undergraduate Engagement Department, the Undergraduate Library Research Award is awarded to a student presenting in the Iowa Center for Research by Undergraduates’ Fall and Spring Undergraduate Research Festivals (FURF/SURF). One award will be presented to a different student each semester. This award goes to an undergraduate student who has demonstrated creative or innovative research skills in the selection, integration, and synthesis of resources, services, and materials from the UI Libraries.
Each award is in the amount of $500.00 to be used at the student’s discretion and is given to a student participating in FURF and one participating in SURF. A student may apply both semesters but only eligible for one award.
