University Honors Summer Scholars Program Summer 2013

The University Honors Program is pleased to announce the second year of the University Honors Summer Scholars Program. The program began in the summer of 2012. In spring 2013, the Honors Committee will select two exceptional students as NIU’s second annual University Honors Summer Scholars.

•To recognize, reward, and honor the University Honors Program’s most outstanding students.
•To enable academically distinguished students to complete an outstanding University Honors Capstone project during their senior year.
•To provide University Honors students with the time, financial support, and faculty mentoring to pursue in-depth, meaningful research and artistry related to the University Honors Capstone in the summer between their junior and senior years; thereby allowing an outstanding project to be completed during the senior year. The summer research or artistry project is intended to create a solid foundation for the Honors Capstone.
•To highlight independent research and artistry undertaken by University Honors students at NIU.
