Your contribution to the Honors College Excellence Fund will ensure that students continue to receive the fine education for which the Honors College is committed to providing.

What is the Honors College Excellence Fund?
The purpose of the Excellence Fund is to aid Honors College students and faculty in the integration of learning and research.

What will my contribution support?
Contributions to the fund will provide for the following:

•Travel money for students to attend professional conferences where they have been selected to present their own research

• Financial support for Faculty Development projects aimed to help faculty to become better educators

• Teaching grants to assist faculty in the development of new courses or to take fresh approaches to already-existing courses

• Library funds to purchase materials for the research and writing of senior thesis projects.

We at the Honors College always are excited about sharing our students' and faculty achievements with others. So, updates regarding the allotment of funds will be shared with contributors. We're certain that you, too, will be proud of those who've chosen the pursuit of knowledge "with Honors."
