The Harry Ransom Center at The University of Texas at Austin has awarded the first Ronald Schuchard Undergraduate Archival Research Prize to three outstanding researchers. The competition awards cash prizes to the top undergraduate research papers or digital projects created using primary source material from the Center’s archival collections.
“This award will recognize the incredible work that undergraduates do in our reading room and will encourage even more students to take advantage of our collections, expanding our research community, and bringing exciting new perspectives to the Center,” Director Stephen Enniss said. “The award directly contributes to our mission of supporting creative and innovative work based on these extraordinary collections.”
