THORNDIKE FUND

What is it?

The Thorndike Fund partially reimburses students for the binding and printing costs of the Olin Library copy of their thesis/essay. The available balance in the Thorndike Fund for the 2020/2021 year will be divided evenly by the number of honors candidates and applied as a credit in the Thesis Registration System for every student registering a thesis/essay, in order to partially offset costs.  Any student whose printing/binding charges are less than the credit will only receive a credit up to the amount of costs incurred.  Students will be informed of the 2019/20 credit amount prior to Thesis Registration.  The Thorndike credit applied to students last year was $50.00 per student.

Students producing an art or film project are also eligible for this credit and may apply for it by submitting a Thorndike application form to Susan Krajewski by the April 14th thesis registration deadline.  Candidates producing an art or film project should contact Susan Krajewski for the application form.
