or… How to get reimbursed for all those hours you spent researching and writing your paper!
Did you know that the UC Berkeley Library sponsors the Library Prize for Undergraduate Research? You can win $1000 (upper division) or $750 (lower division) for your research paper; up to six prizes are awarded annually. UCB undergrads in any discipline are eligible, and the research project must have been completed during either the Summer 2008, Fall 2008, or Spring 2009 semester.
Complete eligibility guidelines and application procedures are on the Library Prize web site. Previous winners include a project by a Public Health student! His Library Prize project later became an article in JAMA, which is already being cited! So … maybe YOUR publishing career will start with your term paper!
