Prize description

The Friends of the Caltech Library established this prize to recognize senior theses that exemplify excellent research, writing and the effective use of library resources. The thesis is an extensive, independent written work produced during the senior year, usually within a senior thesis course series. The thesis informs and thoroughly exposes the process of investigation from hypothesis and proposal to conclusion and discussion in an archival-style thesis-type document (Word template for theses | TeX (.tgz) template for theses). A thesis also includes an appropriately formatted and complete bibliography of references pertinent to the research topic that are effectively used to inform the background and discussion in the theses.  Finalists are honored with a reception hosted by the Friends of the Caltech Library and receive acknowledgment of their finalist status on their official transcript.  The citation is accompanied by a $1200 honorarium and appears in the Commencement program..
