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.
We are currently not accepting proposals for Summer 2020, announcements will be made when the proposal submission reopens.
