The Undergraduate Awards
The University of Tennessee, Knoxville is affiliated with The Undergraduate Awards and is part of a network of innovative universities, identifying and encouraging the best undergraduate research around the world. The Undergraduate Awards (UA) is the world’s largest academic awards program and is unique in that it is pan-discipline, with 25 different categories. Students submit their work for free online and it is judged by a panel of International judges compiled of industry leaders and academic experts. You, as faculty, may sign up to be a judge in your area of expertise.
Winning students are recognized as the best in their field, published in the UA academic journal and brought to Dublin for an exclusive networking event, the 4-day UA Global Summit.
We find that students are more likely to submit when recommended to do so by their faculty, so we urge you to encourage them to submit their best coursework to the program. There are 25 different categories, catering to students from every discipline.
Winning students benefit from the following:
- The Recognition
- The Network
- The UA Global Summit
Overall Winners receive an all-expenses-paid trip to the UA Global Summit in Dublin to attend a four-day brainstorming and networking event with their counterparts from across the globe. Here are the highlights of 2018’s Global Summit.
Please encourage your exemplary students to submit their work to the Undergraduate Awards. The Awards are open to students in the Classes of 2019, 2020, and 2021, regardless of May or December graduate dates.
