The Hege Library Research Award

Hege Library celebrates excellence in student research through the Hege Library Research Award. This award is made possible by the generosity of the Guilford College Friends of the Library and Guilford alumni H. Curt ‘56 and Patricia S. ’57 Hege. The award's establishment coincided with the 25th anniversary of the 1989 addition to Hege Library. It is a celebration of faculty mentorship and librarian engagement in furthering students’ development as critical thinkers and thoughtful and creative scholars. Two $1000 awards will be given on an annual basis to honor and promote exemplary senior theses.  


Students must be nominated by a faculty member for this award. They must be seniors who are working towards a departmental or honors thesis, and they must have a minimum GPA of 3.0. Students must have taken or be taking at least 2 credits of 470/490 under the supervision of a Guilford College faculty thesis advisor.
