Mira Monroe’s achievements during her undergraduate career are too numerous to recount in this setting. Below are a few highlights. Mira's paper on safety issues at U.S. nuclear installations was accepted for delivery at the National Council for Undergraduate Research annual conference; and in 2021, she was awarded the History Department’s Evans C. Johnson Prize for her ongoing research on conditions at US nuclear facilities. Mira's good work has been recognized with still more awards: for her work during her First Year Seminar (FSEM), she won the Library’s Outstanding Research Award. Since then, she has won the Post-Secondary Russian Scholar Laureate of the American Council of Teachers of Russian, the Diane M. Disney Award of the Stetson Program in Russian, Eastern European, and Eurasian Studies, the Knight Fund Scholarship for excellence in the study of post-Soviet regions, and the Outstanding Junior Award in American Studies. She has twice served as a Teaching Assistant in the FSEM course she enrolled in as a first-year student. When Mira was studying in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, she applied her keen historical and cultural insights in an essay on "Kyrgyz Independence Day," published in Folkways: The Roots and Influences of Modern Cultures (September 17, 2022). She has also authored a peer-reviewed publication in Geohistory: Practical Perspectives on a Complex Region (August 2022).
