Honors Thesis Program

Back to top

Undergraduates in the Department of Development Sociology who are writing an honors thesis are eligible to apply to the Polson Institute for research support.

Support may be used to fund travel to field sites; acquire datasets; present work at a conference or workshop; prepare posters; or support publication fees.

While there is no standard application form, requests for support should be submitted by the thesis advisor to polsoninstitute@cornell.edu. All requests should provide a short description of the project and a budget justification and will be reviewed by the Steering Committee on a rolling basis.
