Honors Scholarships

Honors scholarships are available for current and incoming Honors College students. In selecting Scholarship awardees, the Honors College will consider the quality of each candidate's academic work, level and quality of their university participation and involvement, strength of the faculty recommendation, and the extent to which the student essays reflect careful thought and provide strong evidence in favor of scholarship support.

*Students are only required to complete one Honors Scholarship Application and are eligible to apply for each scholarship for which they meet the eligibility criteria. The application period for 2018-2019 awards has now closed. Check back next spring 2019.
