Research Excellence Awards Information

The Research Excellence Awards program was established to encourage and reward those presentations that exemplify the highest levels of excellence in research.  Only a limited number of presentations will be accepted into the awards program, and a team of faculty will evaluate each one on Research Day. 

2015 Research Excellence Award Finalists Announced

Application information

In order to enter the Research Excellence Awards competition, a student must select the "Research Excellence Awards" consideration box on their Research Day application. Then, only three finalists in each category will be selected, and will be notified directly of their selection at least two weeks prior to Research Day.

  • For Oral Presentations: Only single sessions (15 minutes) will be permitted into Research Excellence Awards. If a student originally enters as a multiple-session presentation, they will be asked to switch their presentation to a 15-minute presentation.
  • Students interested in being considered for Research Excellence Awards should check the box for Research Excellence Awards consideration on the application form. We will contact you at least two weeks prior to Research Day if accepted into the Research Excellence Awards Program.
  • If your oral presentation is selected for the Research Excellence Awards, then your presentation will be rescheduled in the Council Room and will likely be rescheduled to a different time.
  • Poster Presenter Finalists may also be asked to reschedule into a different poster session if necessary.
  • Faculty are not allowed to present as part of a Research Excellence Award presentation. Teams are allowed, but only the primary contact will receive the award.
  • All ten Undergraduate REA finalists will have their abstract printed in UNC's Undergraduate Research Journal published in the Fall or Summer 2016 issue. By clicking the box to apply for REA, you are giving permission to have your abstract published by UNC.

Awards Categories

Awards will be presented to the top scoring posters and individual presenters within each of the categories. Graduate and Undergraduate will both be broken into three separate categories (Humanities and Arts, Natural and Health Sciences, and Social Sciences, Education, and Business). Each of these divisions will have separate awards: $100 to each winner in each category, with three finalists for each category.
