Undergraduate Library Research Prize

The Undergraduate Library Research Prize (ULRP), co-sponsored by the UC San Diego Library, UC San Diego Alumni, and the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs, is awarded to students who demonstrate a strategic and effective use of the UC San Diego Library as a resource in direct support of research undertaken on campus.

Eligibility
