The Undergraduate Awards is the world’s largest undergraduate academic awards programme, and Carleton University is a Canadian affiliate. Third and fourth year students are invited to submit exemplary samples of their course works (e.g. term projects, honours thesis as well as visual arts portfolios) to be judged by a panel of International judges compiled of industry leaders and academic experts. Winning students are recognised as the best in their field, are published in the The Undergraduate Journal. and are brought to Dublin for an exclusive four day brainstorming and networking event with their counterparts from across the globe. The Undergraduate Awards provides top performing students with the support, network and opportunities they require to raise their profiles and further their career paths, as well as coming to Dublin for an all-expenses-paid trip to receive their medal.
