Honors Project Scholarship

All students working on an honors project to fulfill the IPFW Honors Program requirements are eligible to apply for funding to aid in the project’s completion and presentation.  This is an ongoing award with no set application deadlines, but students are encouraged to apply as early as possible during their project to increase their chances of success.  Preference is given to students who have not previously received financial assistance from the Honors Program.

Awards are provided in the form of a scholarship; amounts are not fixed, but may not exceed $500. These funds may be used for scientific products and materials, project supplies, such as copying and mailing costs, poster boards and display materials, and worker or participant fees; as well as presentation costs, such as conference registration fees or travel expenses.
