Honors College Scholarships

A limited number of Honors College scholarships are available for current students through the Honors College. These scholarships are awarded annually on the basis of the applicant's academic record with emphasis on Honors coursework and participation in the Honors College. The application opens on March 1 of each academic year and closes April 15.

If awarded an Honors College scholarship, the following requirements must be fulfilled to remain in good standing. You must register for a minimum of 12 credit hours each semester with at least one honors class each semester of the academic year (petitioned courses are permitted). Additionally, we anticipate that you will contribute to the life of the Honors College by participating in the Honors community through a variety of activities and events, including:

  • The annual Honors College Convocation
  • Grand Challenges Forum on Fridays from 1:00-2:00 p.m., at least 5 sessions per semester (total of 10 for the academic year)
  • Handwritten Thank-You Note submission
