Research Award Competition

Undergraduates at UA are invited to submit their research on Asia for the Asian Studies Research Award. A faculty committee will review submissions and determine an awardee in each of two categories, essays and research papers. Essays are generally under 10 pages and can take various forms (book review, response paper, reflective essay, etc.). Research papers are generally longer than 10 pages and involve individual engagement with multiple sources to construct an original argument. These can be seminar term papers, independent study research papers, honors theses, creative projects, etc.

Submissions should be sent to by 11:59 pm on Friday, 20 January, 2023. All submissions must include a cover page with name, CWID, email address, and a 3-4 sentence summary of the paper or project. A small scholarship accompanies each award.
