How Gifts Make a Difference

The support of generous donors enables us to offer special programming and events throughout the year and to award grants for research, study abroad, leadership projects, and more. Help us fund scholarships for underrepresented minority students, research apprenticeships for underclassmen, awards for study abroad, and support for students to present their work at conferences. Your gift will also fund senior honors thesis grants, community-building events, excursions and cultural programming, and book discussions with faculty. Your support will help our bright and curious honors students reach their goals, expand their opportunities, and realize their dreams of success.


Why We Need Your Support

Enrolling approximately 7 percent of all L&S students, the L&S Honors Program encourages in-depth intellectual work in faculty-led seminars, close contact with world-class faculty, breadth and depth of knowledge, creative thinking, informed citizenship, and research projects from the freshman level to senior honors thesis projects. Honors students are ambitious, engaged, passionate, and idealistic. We offer them individualized advising, host events throughout the year, and provide research funding. Your support will make the L&S Honors Program better and stronger by helping us achieve more, support more students, and look to the future.
