The Eckles Prize for Freshman Research Excellence
The Eckles Prize is awarded to a freshman for a research project that shows significant and meaningful use of the resources and services available at the GW Libraries.
First year students are encouraged to submit a research project of any length or format, as well as an essay summarizing how library resources were used to complete that project. Students should enter the one project that they feel reflects their best work of the year.
Prizes are awarded to the top 3 submissions:
1st Place: $500
2nd Place: $300
3rd Place: $200

The deadline to apply is May 20, 2016. Winners will be announced in late summer. Winning students will present their papers during an awards ceremony in the fall.
