Win $1000 just for using the library! This annual award (now in its 6th year) recognizes students making extensive use of library services and resources. All you have to do is complete a research project, participate in the GPSC Student Showcase, and write an essay telling us how the library made your life easier.
We award up to three undergraduate and three graduate students/teams with $1000 each. That will buy a lot of coffee. Or perhaps you'd prefer to spend your winnings on a relaxing vacation after hitting the books all semester.
Congratulations to our 2016 Willock Library Research Award recipients!
