The SCHC will provide a maximum grant of $1,500 for students to purchase needed materials for their senior thesis/project. This $1,500 is included in the $4,500 limit of SCHC research funding (for example, if you have received $4,000, you have $500 left of research grant funding that may be available to you). This senior thesis grant is meant for extraordinary expenses and will not cover ordinary supplies for the senior thesis. Please note travel expenses will NOT be covered through this grant. Items purchased through a senior thesis/project grant becomes property of the Honors College, and we request that a student purchase items covered by the senior thesis/project grant through the Honors College.
The Honors College cannot pay for the typing or copying of a thesis or project paper, for photo duplication, or for purchasing books, periodicals, food or food supplies, meals or routine supplies (e.g., computer or printer ribbons, computer or typing paper, notebooks, etc.).
To apply for a senior thesis/project grant a student will need to submit Senior Thesis Grant Application and an itemized budget proposal with a written proposal explaining the thesis or project the you intends to pursue. When writing the itemized budget, it is to the applicant’s advantage to give a brief explanation of why he or she needs the items in the budget. It is also helpful to include an itemized account of what has already spent for the thesis or project.
The Honors College will not accept any late applications; the application deadline for Fall 2014 is September 02, 2014 at 12 noon. If a student has any additional questions, he or she may contact Dr. Pearl Fernandes. Grant proposals should be turned into the Student Services office in Harper Room 120.
