Scholarships and AwardsEach year the College awards a number of merit-based academic scholarships to incoming freshmen and, in certain cases, to students already enrolled in General Education Honors. Most of those scholarships are renewable for a maximum of eight semesters, from the date of a student's enrollment at the College, provided the student maintains a 3.0 grade point average, remains a full-time student, and makes satisfactory progress toward fulfilling General Education Honors.
In addition, the John Nazarian Honors Scholarship is awarded to an outstanding incoming freshman and Eleanor M. McMahon Honors Scholarships are given to an outstanding rising junior and an outstanding graduating senior, respectively.
Matriculated students in the General Education Honors Program who did not receive honors scholarships as incoming freshmen may apply to the Director of Honors in April for scholarships for the following academic year. Such scholarships will be awarded, if monies are available, on the basis of overall grade point average; progress toward completion of the honors program; and length of matriculation at the college. The minimal requirement for application is a 3.25 cumulative GPA. The Director will send out a call for applications in April.Click here to learn more about the Anne & Bob De Stefano Undergraduate Research Program.
