John D. Unruh, Jr., Award
Win cash for your exceptional research paper written for a humanities and/or social science regular class assignment!
>>> Two $200 awards will be granted
The research paper should be from the areas of the humanities and the social sciences and reflect the highest qualities of undergraduate research and writing.
The paper should result from regular course work taken at Bluffton University in the humanities and/or social science disciplines. Papers completed as part of an honors project or independent study will not be accepted, because they are perceived as having an unfair advantage over a regular term paper. However, any Senior Seminar papers are eligible.
- Submission Procedure:
- Electronic copy submitted to Alex Sider, history and religion department chair. Prior to 5 p.m. Friday, April 2, 2021. Submissions should indicate the course or program for which the paper was written. If you have any questions, please see Alex Sider.
An evaluation committee will evaluate each submission in terms of originality, research and clarity of expression.
Any currently enrolled student at Bluffton University is eligible.
The winner will be recognized during the Academic Awards Forum on Tuesday, April 27, 2021.
This annual competition is offered in honor of John D. Unruh, Jr., professor of history at Bluffton College, 1962-64, 1967-76. The John D. Unruh, Jr., Memorial Fund was organized to promote undergraduate research and scholarship.
