Senior Thesis Funding

Limited funds (up to $150) are available to seniors writing theses. Standard costs for copying and binding theses cannot be funded.

Weight will be given to the candidate's abstract and to the faculty recommendation. When presented with equally excellent thesis proposals and recommendations, the committee may review the candidates' grades to determine grant recipients. For students doing research in grant-supported programs, it is essential that the requested support cover only those expenses which cannot be covered by grant funds.

Send all completed applications to:
