Spotlight on Honors Fellowships

The William & Mary Honors Fellowships provide a way to support the intellectual community at the College through direct contributions to individual undergraduate research projects.

More than four dozen rising seniors at William & Mary spend each summer conducting fully funded intensive research as part of the College’s Honors Fellowships program. Since its start in 2009, the program has experienced rapid growth in private support allowing the number of student participants to nearly quadruple since its inaugural year.

A generous gift from Ted Dintersmith ’74 provides funding for five of the fellows each year. All fellows receive funding for 10 weeks of research and project-related expenses as well as a stipend for their faculty advisor.

Every year since its start in 2009 numerous Monroe Scholars have applied for an Honors Fellowship and each year we have had Monroe Honors Fellows. Monroe Scholars also have the opportunity to use their $3,000 scholarship for summer research funding as part of an Honors Fellowship.
