Non-Resident Honors Student Award (Out of State Students Only)
Thirty Non-Resident Honors Student Awards are available on a competitive basis to non-resident freshmen students who enroll full-time, who meet the full requirements for admission to the Hardin Honors Program (at least a 27 on the ACT/1200 SAT and a high school GPA of at least a 3.50), and who are actively pursuing graduation with an honors designation. This award pays out-of-state tuition fees only and is renewable for up to eight full-time semesters.  Continuation of the award from semester to semester is only guaranteed if the student meets all the criteria for membership in the Honors Program.  For more information, please contact the Honors Program.

National Scholarships/Fellowships
The Honors Program identifies and assists well-qualified students in competing for prestigious national and international fellowships (Goldwater, Truman, Rhodes, Marshall, and others).  As a general rule, successful applicants for these scholarships have a 3.7 GPA or higher.  Depending on the scholarship, an exemplary academic record must be matched by leadership positions in extracurricular organizations or community service (e.g., Truman Scholarship) or ample research experience (e.g., Goldwater Scholarship). 

All prospective applicants are encouraged to visit the scholarship web sites and carefully read their guidelines and eligibility requirements.  Students interested in fellowship opportunities should contact the Honors Office.
