Honors Program Application
To apply to the biological sciences honors program
- Submit an online application. Your proposal must be reviewed by your thesis advisor before you submit.
- Your faculty mentor must submit a letter of support online that includes: 1) why the applicant is a good candidate for the honors program, 2) an assessment of the feasibility of the proposed honors project, and 3) any concerns about the proposed project or challenges you expect the student to face as they work towards honors.
- Both the application and letter of support are due on July 5, 2022.
Students with exceptional circumstances can submit a late application with permission of their faculty research mentor and the OUB. If you would like to be considered for the extended deadline for honors, email biohonors [at] cornell.edu as soon as possible – no later than July 5th. Note that exceptional circumstances do not include being unable to conduct research on-campus over the summer. No applications will be accepted after September 12, 2022.
