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 2012/13 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 2012/13 credit amount prior to Thesis Registration. The Thorndike credit that was applied to each individual student in 2011/2012 was $47.31.
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 12th thesis registration deadline. Candidates producing an art or film project should contact Susan Krajewski for the application form.
