Honors Projects and Posters
University Honors Program

The Honors project is potentially the most valuable component of an Honors education. Typically Honors students choose to do their projects in their area of study, but some will pick a topic of interest unrelated to their major.

The Honors Program requires that the project be presented at a poster presentation event. Poster presentations are held each semester. Most students present during their senior year, but may do so earlier if their honors project has been completed.

This site presents project descriptions and selected posters for Honors projects completed since the Fall 2015 semester.

Abstract

Governments often use tax incentives to encourage business behaviors that otherwise would not take place. The incentives target the needs of the government’s jurisdiction to encourage behaviors like job growth, research and development, capital investment, sustainability, and job training. This research aims to investigate the core motivations for incentive decisions, to gauge how successful tax incentives are at achieving their goals, and to explore how governments may improve the efficacy of their incentive decisions. The research into these questions was done through reviewing the academic literature, studying professional reports of political groups, and analyzing current examples of incentive projects. Finally, this research concludes with a case study into the Ames business and incentive environments that included interviews from prominent local business people to assess the use of tax incentives are used in the community.
