    NCHC Fall 2013

The Elliott T. Bowers Honors College is affiliated with the National Collegiate Honors Council, the Great Plains Honors Council, and the Gulf Coast Intercollegiate Honors Council.  Each of these honors organizations holds annual conferences, to which we are pleased to send selected honors staff and students, all expenses paid. 

We aggressively continue to support student travel to Honors conferences, as well as joining academic departments in supporting student travel to conferences in their academic disciplines.

Students wishing to receive funding for a conference should turn in a completed Funding Request Form to the Honors College office at least one month prior to the trip.
