University Honors Scholars Program


Junior or senior University Honors students who are working on their Honors Capstone project may apply for the University Honors Scholars Program. Through the program, a select number of academically distinguished students will be given time, financial support, and faculty mentoring to pursue research or artistry endeavors and create a solid foundation for the Honors Capstone.

Funding is allocated for the summer between students’ junior and senior years or during their senior year. Additionally, students hold the prestigious title “University Honors Scholar” during their senior year.
