Honors faculty may apply for financial support towards materials and activities in connection 189H, 298H, or 395H Honors seminars. Generally, the maximum support offered is $15/student in the class. For 189Hs and 395Hs this equals about $300; for 298Hs with larger enrollment, it can be up to $600. There is, however, some room for flexibility - especially in connection with courses that feature notable experiential learning opportunities.
Funding is not guaranteed, and must be requested and approved before the activity or related expenses are incurred. Additional expenses not pre-approved will not be funded. Funding is intended for the purpose of enhancing students' experience in an Honors course. We are especially interested in providing support for Honors faculty who extend the classroom by providing additional out-of-class experiences to students.
If granted, funding must be spent before the end of the semester in which the course is being taught. Generally, faculty who receive this funding will be reimbursed for the approved expenses upon submission of appropriate receipts.
