Welcome to the University Honors Program Grants & Fellowships collection. This collection serves as both the destination for Honors grant proposal submissions and the public repository for grants that are funded. Where available, published work that results from grant awards can be reached by viewing the Digital Commons profile of the student awardee.
Proposal Submission Instructions
- Take note of the type of grant that you are requesting. You will need to state this selection as part of the submission form. Descriptions of the available grants can be found at http://academics.lmu.edu/honors/research/.
- If you have not already done so, you will need to create a profile under the LMU Digital Commons system (it will ask you to do this the moment you click on the Submit button below).
- Some fields are applicable only to certain types of grants; read their prompts carefully so that you do not miss items that are needed for your grant.
- If your proposal is awarded, it will appear as a public part of this collection.
Letter of Recommendation/Endorsement from Faculty Mentor
Aside from the application and required student documents, you will also need a letter of recommendation from your Faculty Mentor. Your submission will not be considered complete until the letter is sent to the Honors office. Your mentor should send their letter to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include the student’s name and grant type in the subject line for ease of identification.
