National Collegiate Honors Council Offers New Fellowship

National Collegiate Honors Council has announced a new fellowship for undergraduate honors students.

The award is named for Dr. John and Mrs. Edythe Portz, pioneers in honors education whose support of imaginative ventures in undergraduate education has benefited college students in Maryland and throughout the nation since the late 1960s. The highly competitive award of up to $7,000 is open to all students at any of the more than 800 member institutions of the NCHC in the U.S. and beyond.

The Portz Fellowships support original and extended interdisciplinary projects for up to 18 months.

Applications for the first round of grants will be accepted beginning in January 2010. For more information about the Portz Fellowship, contact Dr. Patrice Berger at, or 402.472.5425. Applications and information about the Portz Fellowship are available online at
