The Asian Studies Research Award is given to a UA undergraduate who has conducted research related to Asia, either as an independent study or as part of a class.  The student does not have to be an Asian Studies minor.  Students should submit their research electronically by 5 pm January 14, 2011 to the faculty award committee at  All students submitting research are encouraged to submit their papers for presentation at the UA Undergraduate Research Symposium in the spring.

Submit your research by January 14.

Asian Studies Outstanding Student Award

The Outstanding Student in Asian Studies Award is given to an Asian Studies minor whose academic work in Asian Studies and potential for future success is outstanding.  Faculty nominate students for this award, so no application or submission by the student is necessary.
