Honors College Revocation Ceremony

Plan ahead with the full calendar.


The Honors College Artists in Residence Program is seeking applicants for the 2018-19 season. Open to students in every major, creative discipline and medium. Participants receive funding for their projects, feedback from the creative community, and are featured in a showcase each spring. 

The Leadership and Service Center is accepting applications for Alternative Break Leaders and Service Saturday Site Leaders.

The Career Center will be offering an opportunity for a student to receive funding for an unpaid internship this summer with a non-profit organization in the Columbia area through the  William L. Richter Scholarship Program

Perk up your network! Honors Caffeine Connection: Connect with another current honors student who has done an internship. Select by major or industry. You choose the date and time, the Honors College picks up the tab! Contact for more info. 

The Office of Fellowships and Scholar Programs (OFSP) is gearing up for their  Intent to Apply season. If you're thinking about applying for a national fellowship next year (2018-2019) submit an  Intent to Apply Form by April 6. 


The ultimate goal of the Office of Fellowships and Scholar Programs is to see you awarded prestigious fellowships and scholarships. Yet the preparation process, in and of itself, enhances academic and personal skills. They can offer you advice targeting specific national competitions, connect you with faculty mentors, and provide assistance through essay review, reflective conversations, and interview practice. Find a competition and make an appointment!

OFSP tips:

  • Develop relationships with faculty members. Get to know them outside of class and make good use of their office hours. They will be the ones writing your letters of recommendation. The better they know you, the better their recommendation.
  • Participate in meaningful co-curricular activities. Sustained involvement with a couple of activities is more impressive than a long list of things with which you are only tangentially involved. 
  • Maintain a high grade point average.
  • Enter writing and essay contests.
  • Participate in summer learning experiences.
  • Practice speaking in front of groups.
  • Stay current. Read newspapers and news magazines such as US News & World Report, The New York Times Sunday Edition (especially Living Arts), National Review, The Nation and Newsweek.
