Just a quick note about the UNDERGRADUATE AWARDS 2012!
I'm sure some of you are already familiar with the programme, but basically the Undergraduate Awards is an international programme aimed at promoting student innovation and the spreading of ideas.
University students, including those at Harvard, Princeton, UCLA, University of Toronto etc etc. are given the opportunity to submit a piece of their work from their final or penultimate (second last) year of their Undergraduate degree. Winning entries will then be published in an Annual UA Journal that gets sent to libraries at all participating institutions.
Additionally, ALL entrants will be given a range of opportunities just for getting involved - for example, notice of internships with companies like Google, access to a top class graduate jobs website, invitations to networking events - all of which are pretty useful in the current climate, even if you do plan on getting outta here!
Criteria are as follows:
1...The work MUST have been graded by a professor and received a 2:1 or higher (that's a B-).
2...You have to be either a current final/penultimate year student OR have graduated in September 2011 (you can then enter work from your final year, 10/11)
That's all! Entry is free. Registration CLOSES March 31st - There are limited places. Then you can submit the work between April-July.
If you have any questions/queries/comments etc. please just post them as a reply Or you can check out the website for more details -
