Applications will be evaluated by members of The Friends Awards and Recognitions Committee. Applicants will be notified via email of approval or denial. Any and all expenses incurred prior to notification will not be paid for by the Friends.

The Friends is a membership-based organization that supports, through contributions and volunteers, the programs and activities of the UL. Membership helps maintain the UL as a vital, dynamic partner in the BGSU community.


Each proposal will be evaluated by The Friends Awards and Recognitions Committee using the following criteria:

  1. Uniqueness: Each submission will represent a novel idea/approach outside of the regular fiscal responsibility of the UL departmental funding.
  2. Educational Goal: Each submission will focus on one or more of the following: improving student achievement, increasing student success and/or increasing student awareness of UL service.
  3. Collaborate: Each submission should have a component of working collaboratively with other BGSU faculty and staff.
  4. Flexibility of timeline: Projects must be initiated and completed within one year after awarding of funds. We ask that funds are spent by June 30, 2023.
  5. Sharing and impact: It is expected that conclusions, pictures, results, and/or findings will be shared with the Friends of the Library Board.
