The History Honors Program culminates with a symposium held on the Friday of graduation weekend (typically the end of April or beginning of May). In a tradition that dates back to 1984, senior honors students invite thesis advisors, family, and close friends to hear them present their thesis research and to be celebrated for their achievements.
Thanks to the generosity of donors, the symposium culminates with the presentation of awards for outstanding thesis writing and best oral presentation. These include the Arthur Fondiler Award for Best Undergraduate Thesis, John A. Williams History Award, Stephen J. Tonsor History of Ideas Undergraduate Honors Award, and James A. Knight Scholarships in History.
The Thirty-First Annual History Honors Symposium for the Honors Class of 2015 will be held on Friday, May 1, 2015, 9 a.m. to 12:30 pm, in Harlan Hatcher Graduate Library, Room 100, 913 S. University, Ann Arbor, Michigan.
