The Honors Program promotes student research in numerous ways: by encouraging students to use Honors Options as a way to do research and to prepare research presentations; by informing students of research conference opportunities such as the annual Georgia Collegiate Honors Council and the GC Research Conference; by offering research conference grants to juniors and seniors who are invited to present their research at out-of-state, professional conferences; and by inviting students to present their research to other Honors students on campus.
Our research conference grants are made possible, in part, by a generous gift from Dr. Lynne S. Wilcox.
