The University Honors Program is committed to encouraging student research and scholarship, and our students are very accomplished in this regard as evidenced by their attendance and participation at professional conferences and their creative performances and productions. Honors students are encouraged to seek research collaborations with faculty within their major and as part of the honors experience throughout their time at RWU. In addition, students are required to complete the Senior Thesis with Distinction as part of the honors curriculum.
To facilitate this, the University Honors Program offers a research award for students engaged in scholarly activity. This award may be used to fund student research and to supplement conference travel. Any student enrolled in the University Honors program may apply for the award.
