The Honors Program combines the spirit of a liberal arts college community with the resources of a leading research university and high-caliber faculty. Enrolling approximately 7 percent of all Letters & Science students, the 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 honors events throughout the year, and provide research funding.
The support of generous donors enables us to offer special honors programming and events throughout the year and to award grants for research, study abroad, leadership projects, and more every year.
Make honors better and stronger by helping us achieve more, support more students, and look to the future. Here’s what your help means to our students:
Help us support the bright, curious, enthusiastic and high-achieving honors students in Letters & Science as they immerse themselves in the ideals of the liberal arts: intellectual curiosity and breadth of knowledge, engaged citizenship, leadership, and service to make the world a better place. Donor gifts currently fund 70 grants to students annually. Your support will help honors students reach their goals, expand their opportunities, and realize their dreams of success. None of this would be possible without you! If you believe in the liberal arts and providing opportunities to students who aim high, the Honors Program needs your support.
