Proficiency in research skills is essential to every scholar, and undergraduate honors students at Tennessee’s flagship public research university enjoy the extraordinary benefits of working directly with leading scholars in their areas of expertise.  Every honors student completes an Honors Thesis project that involves original, independent faculty-mentored scholarship.

Students may apply for Undergraduate Research Grants that enable recipients to both pursue research and acquire invaluable experience presenting their research for their Honors Thesis project, typically at professional conferences related to the student’s academic discipline or during UT’s annual Research Week.
