Care should be taken to complete each of the required sections:
- Description of the Project
- Previous Work
- Proposed Methodology and References
- A reasonable and justified timeline for the stages of the project
Because your ability to carry out an advanced independent project is being judged, in large part, by the quality of your proposal, pay special attention to the guidelines for the proposal outlined here and the advice of your supervisor.
Proposal should be concise, clearly written and thoughtful:
Each proposal should include a statement defining the inquiry, an explanation of the methodology to be utilized, a description of the role of related and supporting research, and a section regarding the significance of the proposed work in relation to current knowledge. As the Honors Committee may not include a specialist in your field, you should avoid technical jargon. Your ability to carry out Honors research successfully is judged, in large part, by the quality of the proposal.
