North County Studies Awards

This year the Friends of Owen D. Young and Launders Libraries (FODYLL) will be awarding two prizes for undergraduate student research.

To be considered for this prize, student work must fit the following criteria:

  • Work must focus on topics, issues or concerns having to do with Northern New York or with St. Lawrence University history.
  • Students should have made use of library resources.
  • Work must be in the fields within the humanities or social sciences

Both competitions are open to all currently enrolled undergraduate SLU students. Students are invited to submit their entries electronically (preferred) or by paper copy along with any supporting media or documentation integral to the project.  If the project involves an oral presentation, students may make arrangements to present the project in person to the committee.  Please contact Theresa O’Reilly if you require this option.  (toreilly@stlawu.edu or 229-5454)
