The Honors Thesis Prize

A student’s Honors Project Committee may nominate a thesis that is of exceptional quality, representing sustained work, originality and technical mastery well above and beyond the expectations for an undergraduate Honors thesis in the field for consideration for the Honors Thesis Prize.

Each department is limited to one nominee.

The Honors Council reviews the nominated students and awards the prize at the end of the semester.

One thesis per year may also be nominated for the Portz prize, which is awarded to the best Honors papers at the National Collegiate Honors Council conference.
