This annual prize recognizes students who produce a research project in their first year that demonstrates significant and meaningful use of library services and collections at the George Washington University. 

First-year students are encouraged to submit a research project of any length or format, along with an essay summarizing how they used library resources to complete the project. Students should submit the one project that reflects their best work of the year. Prizes will be awarded for the top 3 submissions.

Visit the Eckles Prize Application Information page to learn more. 

Winners will be announced in late summer. Winning students will present their research at an awards ceremony during the Fall term, and those papers will be included in GW's institutional repository.

The deadline to apply is Monday, May 23rd before midnight.
