Honors Scholars


If you're a junior or senior University Honors student working on your honors capstone project, you 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 your junior and senior years or during your senior year. Additionally, you'll hold the prestigious title "university honors scholar" during your senior year.
