The primary purpose of the Honors Enrichment Contract is to give students and faculty the opportunity to interact about challenging academic issues. Students and faculty should feel free to design an agreement in addition to general course expectations that is tailored to the specifics of their interaction, the expected work, and the course. Both faculty and students should be able to benefit from the honors enrichment contract work.
The below attachments from the Barrett Honors College provide useful information about various avenues for working with some of the best undergrads on campus!

Also, the Bidstrup Fellowship Award provides up to $2000 for HON students to do research with a faculty member. Note, the student must have financial need, though this is not clearly defined in the application form.
