Honors Summer Research Fellowship
Honors College students have the opportunity to work closely with faculty mentors on research and creative projects during the summer. Collaborative teams of faculty and students are compensated for their time and effort, allowing them to use the valuable summer term for sustained research activities. This program increases the research productivity of both faculty and Honors students. Engaging in sustained research through this program builds skills and experiences that can lead to an Honors Thesis, external funding, peer-reviewed publications, academic conference presentations, and preparation for graduate school.
For the Summer 2019, applications are due February 8. Interested faculty and students may learn more about this opportunity and complete the application.
The Honors College at FGCU presents a challenging curriculum that affords students opportunities to take Honors courses in their major, conduct research, study abroad and access resources aimed at helping them excel. Honors College students gain skills and experiences aimed at transforming them into successful adults who will go out into the world and create positive change.
