The Honors College Summer Research Fellowship is a great way to prep for future Honors Thesis work. One of the best things about the Fellowship is that you get to pick whatever topic is interesting to you, regardless of your major. It’s a great way to practice intellectual and academic autonomy, hone your organizational and time management skills, and develop a connection with your faculty research advisor all while pursuing a topic of genuine interest to you and getting paid for it!
