College Scholar Programs

Several College Scholar Programs offer exceptional  opportunities to students who have distinguished themselves academically as well as in other areas including leadership, creativity and service. 

These stimulating and challenging programs include the College Honors Program, the Fenwick Scholar Program, and the Presidential Scholars Symposium.

College Honors Program

The College Honors Program brings together academically accomplished and highly motivated students to pursue multidisciplinary studies in the natural sciences, social sciences and humanities.  It promotes intellectual creativity and breadth as well as mastery of one's academic major.  Students accepted to this very selective program take two special seminars, participate in an interdisciplinary discussion series, and pursue a senior thesis project.

Fenwick Scholar Program

The Fenwick Scholar Program provides one of the highest academic honors the College bestows.  Each year, one student is given the unique opportunity to pursue a challenging, cohesive project that he or she has designed in consultation one or more faculty advisors.  

 The Fenwick Scholar is selected through a rigorous application process which takes place during the junior year
