Honorables of Color Scholarship
Initiated by the student-founded and led organization of the same name, Honorables of Color (HOC), the scholarship is open to new students accepted and enrolled in the Honors College, who support marginalized communities.
Study Abroad Scholarship for Honors
When students immerse themselves in new and different cultures, they are able to navigate an increasingly complex globalized world. Funding opportunities for students to study abroad or study away, offer cultural experiences of which many students have only dreamed.
Experiential Learning Fund
Support student projects, and the costs associated with them, including conference participation where students have opportunities to meet, collaborate with and learn from peers, faculty scholars and business leaders from across the country and around the world.
Transfer Student Scholarship
Offering financial support to current TU students (who transfer into the Honors College) rewards those exceptional students for their scholarship and dedication, and challenges them to become part of the special family of Honors College scholars.
Living-Learning Communities Expansion
Expanding our living learning communities is a priority for the Honors College. Funding will grow on-campus Honors activities and community programming, so students can put their education to work in their communities and beyond.
Endowed Faculty Positions
Support is needed to grow full-time faculty positions in the Honors College. The priority is an endowed chair position which will ensure a focus on developing and sustaining a distinctive and creative curriculum, experiential course development and engaged research.
“When I think about my legacy at TU—it is my mentors who moved me to give back. It’s a privilege. Being civically engaged in the community makes you think about how to help those who come after you. My gift funds Model UN, conferences and research positions for students.”

“The A-List is really like a family. The community and mentorship from A-list is what got me through school. I felt like I had value—putting passion into things I cared about. I have my job at Howard County Library directly because of being an A-List.”
