Honors Fellowships

Fund an undergraduate's summer research.

We have recently completed the seventh year of the Charles Center’s initiative to increase support for the honors thesis research of William & Mary undergraduates. The success of our crowd-source platform has once again increased by every measure, and for this we are sincerely grateful to the many alumni and friends who have embraced Honors Fellowships as an annual priority.

With your help we were able to fully fund 54 Honors Fellows for summer, 2015. We encourage you to browse our “Meet the Fellows” page, where you will find bios and links to the blogs of our 2015 Honors Fellows. Our students not only rely on your financial support, but you can make a significant contribution by making suggestions to their research, calling attention to valuable resources, or, more generally, by serving as a mentor as our students prepare to make the transition from the College to graduate school and professional life. We hope you will enjoy the opportunity to explore the site and learn about how the students are progressing in their work.

Applications for Summer 2016 Fellows are due Wednesday, March 2nd, so be sure to visit the site later that week for a special sneak peek of the 2016 applications! If you would like to make a donation now, you may do so through the Honors Fellowships General Fund.

Many thanks for your support!
