Through the efforts of the family and friends of Timothy M. Smith, the UT Honors Program is pleased to offer the Timothy M. Smith Inspiration Through Exploration Award.  This award is made each year to stimulate international  study and writing among Honors Program students.  The selected student will receive up to $2,500 for summer travel  expenses.  The award, offered through the Honors Program, has been established to honor the life of Timothy M. Smith.  Although a lawyer by trade, Tim’s true passion was traveling the world and writing about his many experiences.  The  award provides a talented student author with an opportunity to travel and find additional inspiration for pursuing  literary aspirations.  The Timothy M. Smith Inspiration Through Exploration Award is presented annually to an Honors  Program student near the end of the fall semester.

Eligibility: Any continuing full-time University of Tampa undergraduate Honors student in good standing is eligible.

The application deadline is February 1 for travel in the subsequent summer.

Note:  Each year’s recipient must submit a photo essay detailing their experiences during their summer journey. Essays will be posted at www.inspirationthroughexploration.com
