Honors College Chancellor's Fellows Award

Honors College Chancellor's Fellows' commitment to their coursework and full-time attendance in The Honors College program is paramount. Awards will be provided for each Honors College Fellow consisting of up to 15 credit hours of in-district tuition, up to $600 book allowance, and a $600 allowance. The goal is to remove outside barriers so Fellows students can focus completely on their education and be successful program participants. We want Fellows students to maximize their involvement in the program both inside the classroom, with the required course curriculum, and outside the classroom, with the extensive Honors College service projects and events.
