September 10, 1997
For immediate release:

The Center for Research on Vermont announces two undergraduate awards
for research projects on a Vermont topic:

    The George B. Bryan Award

    For excellence in a project on a Vermont topic completed for a
    one-semester course. Recommended length: 15-25 pages.

    Offered annually in memory of UVM Professor of Theatre and former
    Center Director George B. Bryan (1939-1996).

    The Andrew E. Nuquist Award

    For outstanding research on a Vermont topic, usually awarded to a
    culminating study. Recommended length: No limit.

    Offered annually since 1982 in memory of UVM Political Science
    Professor Andrew E. Nuquist (1905 1975).

The Center for Research on Vermont annually selects undergraduate
student projects to receive awards in two categories: The Bryan
Award, for one-semester course projects, and the Nuquist Award,
which is usually presented to a culminating study. The awards include
cash prizes donated by the Center and are intended to promote
excellence in student research on Vermont topics. The award-winning
projects, as well as other finalists, will become a permanent part of
the University of Vermont's Special Collections Department at
Bailey/Howe Library where they will be available for the use of
researchers. If appropriate, projects may also be presented for
possible publication to the Center's editorial board.

Projects demonstrating superior treatment of a Vermont theme are
judged by the Center's Award Committees. Special emphasis is placed
on creativity, analysis, and quality of presentation in both the
Bryan and Nuquist competitions; evidence of comprehensive and
systematic research is also considered  in the Nuquist Award
category. Although the majority of projects submitted are in the
form of papers, other project formats are encouraged.

A word of caution: Students contemplating submitting electronic
records should first contact the Center Coordinator for information
about our requirements.


    All college and university undergraduate students are eligible
    for the competition.

    Each project must be nominated by the supervising faculty member,
    as discussed below.

    There is no limit to the number of projects which an institution
    or department may submit, but submissions should be limited to
    one per faculty sponsor per year.

    The Committee neither gives preference to, nor discriminates
    against, projects by more than one author, or, in the case of the
    Nuquist Award, projects which have taken more than one year to
    complete, or projects which have been supported in whole or in
    part by grants or other third-party funding. Projects which
    result from internships with governmental agencies or other
    nonacademic groups are also eligible for the Nuquist Award.

    Projects must have been completed within the calendar year
    beginning January 1, 1997, and ending December 31, 1997, to be
    eligible for the 1998 competitions.

DEADLINE: Monday, February 2, 1998

For detailed information about submitting projects for both
competitions, please continue reading:

    1.   Coversheet-- Each project should include a sheet giving
    information about the student(s), including name(s),
    institution(s), mailing address(es) and telephone number(s),
    major(s) and year(s) in college. It should also include the name
    and telephone number of the faculty sponsor. If the project
    received outside funding, this should be indicated, as well.

    2.    Recommendation letter(s)--Each project must include a
    letter of  recommendation from the nominating faculty member,
    stating why the project merits the award. Faculty sponsors are
    encouraged to be as specific as possible in outlining how  the
    project compares to the work of others, what unique contributions
    it makes, evidence of unusual initiative, etc. If projects
    submitted in the Nuquist Award category are of multiyear duration
    or resulted from work done for a nonacademic agency, such as
    might occur on internships, a letter of recommendation from the
    agency supervisor should also be included.

    3.   Project abstract(s)--Three copies of an abstract of the
    project, not to exceed one typewritten, double-spaced page,
    should be submitted with the project. If papers or projects are
    of a very technical nature, or, for example, utilize specialized
    terminology unique to a particular discipline, they should also
    be accompanied by a second abstract in non-technical language
    suitable for assessment by reviewers outside of the discipline.

    4.  The project itself--If the project is a paper, three
    typewritten, double-spaced copies must be submitted.  If the
    project is other than a paper, it should constitute a
    self-contained unit and should be accompanied by suggested
    viewing procedures. Electronic records submitted to the
    committee *after consultation with the Center Coordinator* must
    be written with generic software and standard hardware and, if
    possible, be accompanied by a complete or partial hard copy;
    three sets of 3.5" diskettes and three copies of the accompanying
    hard-copy text should be submitted. Footnotes and bibliography
    should follow an accepted format, e.g., _The Chicago Manual of
    Style_.

The Center may keep all materials until after the April 30 award
ceremony, so students should be sure to keep copies for themselves.

Submit all projects to:

    Kristin Peterson-Ishaq, Coordinator
    Center for Research on Vermont
    Nolin House, 589 Main Street
    University of Vermont
    Burlington, VT 05401-3439
    802-656-4389
    Email: [log in to unmask]

 DEADLINE:  Monday, February 2, 1998

Note:  The Award Committees would appreciate if students planning
to enter the competition would submit letters of intent to the
Center by Tuesday, January 20.
