The Undergraduate Journal of the Northeast Regional Honors Council 


Illuminate is the undergraduate journal of the Northeast Regional Honors Council (NRHC). The honors students of the northeast region are extraordinarily talented. Many of the students in the region present their scholarly and creative work at NRHC's annual conference, traditionally held every spring. The purpose of Illuminate is to allow students to publish their work, letting it "shine on" and provide intellectual and creative stimulation to all. 


The 2020 Edition is now available! Please browse through the 30 pieces of academic and creative work that our talented contributors worked so hard on!


We are pleased to debut a page on our website dedicated to the students who were supposed to present in person at #NRHC2020! Please check out the amazing work from students who elected to be featured on the page. 


The journal opens the call for submissions every September. Each year, the theme for Illuminate is the theme of the NRHC Annual Conference. Students who submit proposals to the NRHC conference are also encouraged to submit their academic and creative pieces to Illuminate. The deadline for submissions to the journal is in May (after the annual conference). Notifications are sent to proposers in late June/early July. Contributors are asked to make revisions by late August/early September and the journal is published by the time of the annual National Collegiate Honors Council (NCHC) conference in November. 

Submissions for 2021 are now open. Click below to learn more about making your submission!
