"Completing an honors thesis is in itself a remarkable accomplishment, but the projects recognized have been selected by Stanford faculty as the most outstanding and deserving of this special distinction, representing approximately the top ten percent of all theses submitted," the Office of the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education at Stanford University said.
