2022 Falvey Scholars Virtual Research Presentation and Awards Ceremony

The Villanova community is cordially invited to join us on Friday, April 22 at 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. for the 2022 Falvey Scholars Virtual Research Presentation and Awards Ceremony.

This program will provide the opportunity to recognize outstanding undergraduate research by the senior students who were selected as the 2022 Falvey Scholars from across Villanova’s campus. The event also serves as a recognition of the dedication of faculty in supporting undergraduate student-faculty collaborative research and scholarship.

During the event, award recipients will share a video where they provide a brief 10-minute presentation to highlight their overall research process and showcase a summary of their winning project. Presentations will emphasize the use of Library resources, which may include one-on-one librarian consultations, reference workshops, library books and journals, access to Interlibrary Loan, databases, and even quiet study space. 5 minutes of live Q&A will take place after each student presentation.

REGISTER HERE

This event, co-sponsored by Falvey Memorial Library and the Center for Research and Fellowships, is free and open to the public. Join us to recognize some of Villanova’s finest senior scholars!

**Please note that this event will be recorded and photographed. **

Announcing the 2020 Falvey Scholar Award Winners

Please join Falvey Memorial Library and the Center for Research and Fellowships (CRF) in congratulating the 2020 Falvey Scholar award winners: Lauren Garofalo, Samantha Sandler, Gabriella Bliss Giordano, Timothy A. Long, Josephine Papotto, Madison Puleo, and Brett Schratz.

Falvey Scholars is an annual program, presented by the Library and CRF in an effort to recognize outstanding undergraduate research at Villanova University. In order to qualify for the Falvey Scholars award, a senior student/group of senior students who are working on a capstone or research project must be nominated by a faculty advisor and then submit their own application for consideration. Award winners are chosen from a pool of candidates by a committee of representatives from Falvey and CRF.

While an in-person celebration of the award winners is typically held each April, due to COVID-19 and the physical campus closure, this year’s Falvey Scholars will be highlighted on the Library blog, where brief digital presentations by each scholar will be featured. Presentations will include an overview of winning projects and will emphasize the use of Falvey resources in the overall research process.

Please be sure to check out our blog as we head into senior week for brief video presentations by each of our scholars.
