Honors Guarantee Scholarship

Right off the bat, first-semester students admitted automatically or holistically to the University Honors Program for the fall semester receive a $1,000 Honors Guarantee Scholarship. You'll receive half in the fall and half in the spring semester of your first year. 

We very much encourage students to apply for other scholarships, visit us in the Honors office and talk to the director and staff about the scholarship money that could be available to you! We want to help as much as we can.

More than just money

All universities offer scholarships, but we pair some scholarships with extraordinary and enriching experiences. Here are a few of the scholarships that support students financially while they are participating in special educational opportunities.

Blugold Fellowship

This scholarship offers Blugolds $5,400 to collaborate with a faculty member on research during your first years of college. Not only will this opportunity pay off financially, but it will open doors for your future.
