Carter Joseph Abrescy and Larry Kranich Library Award for Student Research Excellence (2019-2020)

The Carter Joseph Abrescy and Larry Kranich Library Award was established in 2017 to recognize outstanding undergraduate research at UC Merced. The award recognizes students who demonstrate effective use of library and information resources, as well as an understanding of the research process and growth in research practices. A committee of faculty and librarians reviewed applications and selected two awardees, each receiving a $500 award.
