Honors Research Grants

A limited number of grants of up to $500 are available to Honors students each semester. Selection is based on academic merit, quality of supporting materials, and financial need. Grant money is used to support the research efforts of students, and can be used for expenses such as travel to conferences or equipment unique to the student’s project.

To qualify, students must be admitted to a college or departmental Honors program. They must be actively engaged in a research project that leads to an individual Honors thesis. Students must have a FAFSA on file for the current academic year that demonstrates financial need.

Students who are awarded the honors research grant agree to submit a final copy of their thesis to the Honors College, and to have their name, thesis title, and abstract posted on the Honors website. A student may receive the award once.
