The William and Mary Honors Fellowships provide a new way to support the intellectual community at the College through direct contributions to individual undergraduate research projects.
All students who have been approved by their departments to conduct Honors research in the 2013-2014 academic year are eligible to apply for fellowships of up to $6,000 through the William & Mary Honors Fellowships program. A faculty committee reviews these applications and awards five fellowships funded by Ted Dintersmith, an alumnus who completed honors theses in both Physics and English when he was an undergraduate. Those students who are not chosen for one of the initial Dintersmith fellowships will receive funding from gifts collected through the William and Mary Honors Fellowships web site.
We recently approved proposals for this year’s summer honors research projects — and now we are looking for people willing to fund these incredible research projects. Simply visit our web site, browse the list of projects, and choose the project — or projects — you want to support. Then follow along through the blog as the students post on their research experiences throughout the year.
