Honors College Path Scholarship

You've always dreamed of designing skyscrapers or perhaps, your passion lies in eliminating "food deserts" in inner cities. Thanks to generous support from private donors, the Path Program supports students in every discipline and every academic college.  

Honors College Path Scholarships are awarded to  incoming freshman students pursuing interests that range from architecture to pre-med to poultry science. They will receive annually renewable scholarships up to $4,500, or $5,500 if they later join the Honors College.

In addition to scholarships, our Honors College Path Scholars will benefit from programs and mentoring offered by the Honors College and our partners across campus. Our goal is to create a community that will equip you with the tools you need to thrive as a future professional. You will commit to:
