University of New Hampshire
Many Honors students apply for and receive research funding from the Hamel Center for Undergraduate Research. The Research Experience and Apprenticeship Program (REAP) is a special, funded research opportunity for Honors students. In collaboration with the University Honors Program, the Hamel Center also offers grants of up to $150 to support honors thesis expenses. These grants can assist students who incur expenses from opportunities not anticipated when they began their thesis work. Community-building events offered through the UHP include Pizza with Professors, Honors 20/20 Night (focusing on research), the Honors Reading Cafe, and off-campus excursions. Future-oriented programming, including planning for internships and graduate school, is also planned for students. The UHP offers opportunities to participate in program governance through the Honors Student Council; furthermore, Honors students can participate in the Peer Mentoring Program, which encourages sophomore, junior, and senior Honors students to mentor incoming first-year Honors students. Honors leadership opportunities build a strong UHP community.
