Dietrich Honors Fellowship Program

Seniors in the Dietrich College of Humanities and Social Sciences’ Senior Honors Program typically research and write their theses during their final year – at the same time that they are taking classes, participating in internships and planning their next steps.

In order to give select students a head start on their theses development, the Dietrich College offers the Senior Honors Fellowship Program. Fellows will spend the summer before their senior year undertaking early-stage research and development of their thesis topics. Summer months offer an opportunity for fellows to build a strong foundation for their thesis, creating momentum for academic year pursuits leading to completion of the project by the end of the spring term.

The research projects are funded through direct support to either a specific student’s work or a general fellowship fund. Learn more.

Juniors with excellent academic success can apply to the fellowship program during the spring semester.
