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 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 credit amount prior to Thesis Registration.  

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 the Registrar's Office by the spring thesis registration deadline.  Candidates producing an art or film project should contact the Registrar's Office for the application form.
