University Honors Program Scholarships

All first-year student applicants are automatically considered for University Honors Program scholarships. Applicants do not need to apply again for scholarships. The scholarships renew up to three times as long as students meet the program requirements. University Honors Program scholarships range from $250 to $1,000 per year based on merit and financial need. Students who accept their Honors Program scholarship offer are expected to serve as Honors Peer Mentors upon completion of their first year in the program. Honors Peer Mentors connect with prospective and new students through curricular and co-curricular activities to be determined by the program staff.

Please visit the Student Financial Aid Services scholarships webpage for more information.
