Financial Assistance, Scholarships, and Awards

One of the benefits of the Honors College is the access to dedicated scholarships, financial support, and awards (often with an added monetary gift). The Honors College seeks to recognize the achievements of our students through a variety of scholarships and special awards, while many of our first-year students are eligible for awards that are determined through the admissions process.

Through the generosity of alumni and supporters of the Honors College, we are able to give students a number of awards and scholarships each year. Students must submit an application, including an essay, must be actively enrolled in and pursuing the Honors College Certificate, and meet the criteria for each individual award. The recipients are honored at the Honors College Awards Ceremony, held in the late spring each year.

In the 2018-19 academic year, students in the Honors College received $32,399,823.64 in scholarships, grants, and financial aid (University, state, and federal awards).
