2014 Undergraduate Research Award Submissions

EKU Libraries presented the first Library Undergraduate Research Award (UGRA) at the 2014 University Scholars Assembly. The Award, made possible by the Friends of EKU Libraries, recognizes students whose research makes expert and creative use of library services, resources, and collections to produce a scholarly or creative work. Dr. Kevin Jones, UGRA Committee Chair, says: “The Award is a wonderful opportunity to showcase the excellence of undergraduate research here at Eastern, as well as EKU Libraries’ contribution to that research.”

Kathline Hartch won the $1,000 first place prize for her project, The Dodd-Frank Act. Hartch, who put education on hold to raise her children before coming to EKU, changed her major to Economics during the research process.

Phillip Kyles and Samuel Shearer each received $350 for The Effects of Hyperhomocysteinemia on Vascular Disease and Truman Smith’s Reports on Nazi Militarism: A Study of Domestic Political Priorities and U.S. Foreign Policy-Making in Franklin Roosevelt’s First and Second Terms, respectively.
