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 2014/15 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 2014/15 credit amount prior to Thesis Registration.  The Thorndike credit that was applied to each individual student in 2013/2014 was $43.83.

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 10th thesis registration deadline.  Candidates producing an art or film project should contact Susan Krajewski for the application form.
