Honors College Scholarships

The applications for these scholarships are accessible by clicking on the names of the scholarships below. 

Note that the Continuing, First Neighborhood Bancshares, Dorothy Bunge and Rachael Richardson scholarships all share one application form. The Charles Austin scholarship has a separate application form since it applies to study abroad. The deadline for the scholarships is given on the application form, and will usually be early in the spring semester. The Lasky award (for outstanding seniors) and the Pine Scholarship also have unique applications, since they require different materials.
