The Ronald Schuchard Undergraduate Archival Research Prize
The Ronald Schuchard Undergraduate Archival Research Prize is awarded each academic year to the best research papers or digital projects created using primary source material from the Harry Ransom Center’s archival collections. All current undergraduates at The University of Texas at Austin who have completed an academic project involving archival research in the Center’s collections are encouraged to apply.
The First Place Award is $1,000, the Second Place Award is $700, and an Honorable Mention Award for Freshmen and Sophomore students is $300. Award recipients will be announced in appropriate venues and be recognized at a ceremony in their honor at the Center.
This award can affect any financial aid you receive this academic year. Please contact the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid to see if the award exceeds your cost of attendance. If so, you may need to submit an appeal. If you do not receive any financial aid, you can disregard these instructions.
