Formerly known as the Library Student Research Award, in 2019 the award became part of the College of Arts and Sciences Student Symposium and was renamed the Student Research Award.
Each year, professors nominate students or students nominate themselves and then a committee chooses one student winner. The winner receives a prize, eternal bragging rights, and is celebrated at the annual College of Arts and Sciences Student Symposium.
From 2016-2018, the Lynn Library Staff, who began the contest to find the Lynn students who wrote the best research papers, awarded the Library Student Research Award to one undergraduate, one graduate student winner, and two honorable mentions. Winners were celebrated at the Library's annual Published Faculty Reception (now known as the Academic and Creative Excellence Reception).
