Honors Contract Proposal Guidelines
This proposal should contain specific information about the project you will pursue under your

assignments (e.g. merely extending the length of a paper is not acceptable). Type this two-page form.
You must complete this form in consultation with your instructor.
Complete each section, then print and submit hard copy to the DHC Office by 5:00 PM, Friday,
January 18, 2013.
