Each year, a select few new students became University Scholars – the highest distinction and most competitive academic scholarship awarded to incoming students. These students have demonstrated evidence of intellectual vision, a commitment to the obligations of citizenship, and the potential to overcome obstacles and solve challenging problems.

These students receive a scholarship covering the full cost of tuition over four years, and they participate in a holistic four-year undergraduate experience designed to foster their development as citizens, researchers, and innovative thinkers.

While the University Scholars represent diverse interests and experiences, they share a deep intellectual curiosity, a commitment to leadership and service, and a thoughtful approach to their undergraduate education. Together, these students constitute a vibrant community of learners and leaders who challenge each other to explore new ideas and new possibilities.

Please note that offers to join the University Scholars Program will not be extended until early February.
