    The Honors Fellowship

    All students who were approved to conduct departmental Honors in the 2013-2014 academic year were eligible to apply for fellowships through the William and Mary Honors Fellowship program. Representing a variety of disciplines, the Fellows receive funding to devote 10 full-time weeks during the summer for research and additional money during the year for project-related expenses.
