Departmental Honors Projects
Anne & Bob De Stefano Undergraduate Research Program
The Anne & Bob De Stefano Undergraduate Research Program makes monetary awards to support undergraduate students doing departmental honors projects. The awards may be used for a variety of purposes, as outlined in the Information Sheet. An Application Form is also provided.
Completing the Departmental Honors Project
- Students completing departmental honors projects are required to fill out and submit the following online forms. The results will be recorded in a printed catalog celebrating the accomplishments of honors students.
- If there are any questions about the form, please contact the Director of Honors.
- Departmental Honors Projects Poster Session - To complete the departmental honors process, we ask that students display their work to the college community as part of the year-end Convocation of Scholars festivities. This display takes the form of a poster session meant to recognize those students who have successfully completed honors projects in their respective majors and to share their accomplishments with the college community. You are welcome, indeed encouraged, to invite friends and family, as well as your project advisors, to the poster session. We also hope that many faculty members from your respective departments will attend.
The date of this year's session will be announced when available.
