Kirmser Research Awards ceremony tomorrow

Submitted by Darchelle Martin

The public and campus community are invited to the Kirmser Undergraduate Research Awards ceremony from 2-3 p.m. Wednesday, May 7, in the Hemisphere Room at Hale Library.

Grand prize winners and honorable mentions will be announced at the ceremony for the three categories:

  • Individual freshman projects — $1,000 grand prize
  • Individual undergraduate projects, non-freshman — $1,000 grand prize
  • Undergraduate group project — minimum $2,000 grand prize

Funded by a gift to K-State Libraries from Philip and Jeune Kirmser, the awards were established to recognize and promote outstanding scholarship among K-State's undergraduates.

"The Libraries have long been interested in helping undergraduates produce high-quality scholarship," said Jason Coleman, undergraduate librarian and Kirmser Undergraduate Research Award Committee chair. "This award is part of our commitment to going beyond traditional efforts by developing new avenues for recognizing and encouraging outstanding undergraduate research. The award committee received several truly exceptional applications this year, and we are excited to recognize their work."
