BHC Honors Research Symposium

Bay Honors Consortium Conference 2016


The Community College
Honors Research Symposium 


The annual student research conference of the Bay Honors Consortium is hosted in alternate years by Stanford University and U.C. Berkeley.

Because this is an upstate conference, it's also a weekend-long commitment. We take a college van early Friday (possibly Thursday) and come home late Sunday.

The Honors Student Council of the Associated Student Government (subject to ASG guidelines) and the Honors Program will contribute toward the expenses of registration and lodging and will provide van transportation to the conference IF AND ONLY IF presentation proposals are submitted and reviewed by the Honors Program Office before being submitted. See details in the screaming yellow box below.






The Spring 2016 Bay Honors Symposium
will be held at
The University of California, Berkeley
