Fellowships and Scholarships

Leer en Español

The Honors College encourages students to discover new ideas, create their own masterpieces and serve their communities. To help our top students achieve their goals, the Honors College provides generous fellowships. Each year, up to 90 new freshmen receive fellowships that provide $70,000 in support over four years, plus a 90% non-resident tuition award if applicable (For programs with degree plans longer than four years, extra semesters of funding may be available.) These awards may be applied towards tuition, room and board, and fees, and may also be used to support other expenses such as study abroad, undergraduate research projects and travel to conferences.

Students who are academically competitive for our fellowships need only complete the fellowship application. Fellowship applicants are also considered for the university's new freshman scholarships.

The fellowship application will be used to determine the awarding of the following fellowships:

Rosalee Reese used her Honors College Fellowship and Distinguished Governors scholarship to fund her semester abroad:

"I was fortunate enough to spend my fall semester studying in Florence, Italy. I took a diverse class load, a combination of Italian, culture and science. I was able to travel to Munich, Prague, London and Berlin during my semester abroad as well as exploring many regions of Italy."
