The Livingstone Undergraduate Research Awards—formerly known as the Library Prize—are Temple University Libraries’ reshaped, expanded, and improved initiative rewarding the best undergraduate work at the university. The Livingstone Awards address the depth and breadth of undergraduate research subjects, methods, and projects through five distinct categories: humanities and social sciences; science, technology, engineering, and mathematical disciplines; creative works and media production; policy, practice, and public life; and sustainability and the environment. The awards have been renamed to honor our generous donor, John H. Livingstone, SBM ‘49, who has supported undergraduate research through the Library Prize and now Livingstone Awards for more than a decade.
We are happy to announce this year’s award winning projects!
