The Charles Center has completed the fifth year of an online fundraising program, which garners support for undergraduate honors thesis research. Thanks to you, the William & Mary Honors Fellowships program has reached more students than ever before! The program had a record 60 applicants, and thanks to your generosity, 35 of these proposed student projects become fully funded. Your generosity also allowed us to provide two significant matching challenges, which we hope to continue during future years.
In 2009, the first year for William & Mary Honors
Fellowships, just over $11,000 was raised to support these undergraduate research projects. This year, more than $165,000 was given in support of these projects. Please help us continue to spread the word about the importance of research at William & Mary.
We look forward to sharing our next round of applicants with you in Spring 2014. In the meantime, please look around the Honors Fellowships website, where we have included biographies and access to the blogs of our 35 Honors Fellows. Their research would not be possible without your generosity. We are most grateful!
