Grant Award Report
Support for your Honors Thesis Project
Honors supports a select number of Thesis projects with Crown Awards and Wise-Marcus 50-Year Friendship Awards. Each year we fund approximately 25 projects with up to $5,000 per project.
Additionally, a distinguished Honors alum, Dr. Lynne Parker, has sponsored the Parker Award for Women in Science, which funds a female student's Thesis project in a science field each year.
Funding can make additional research opportunities, materials, or travel available to you, helping you produce an even more impressive final project. Additionally, it's a valuable professional experience: learning to create a budget and argue on behalf of your project prepares you for future grant writing and application processes.
