Note: The Honors College is now accepting applications for the Fall '24/Spring '25 academic school year!

An Honors College Student Fellowship is a $1,500 grant given to a Commonwealth Honors student for pre-approved scholarly engagement that is overseen and guided by a mentor. Each fellowship must have a critical reading component and conclude with a 15 minute in-person presentation. The student is expected to invest about 100 hours of focused effort. A single fellowship can be spread across, but not exceed, 12 consecutive months.

The $1,500 grant is applied to a student's financial account. Typically, half of the award ($750) is disbursed at the start of the fellowship, with the second ($750) disbursed when the student satisfactorily completes their final presentation.

Please note: Students can only receive one (1) Honors College Student Fellowship.

Eligibility: Students must be in good standing with the Honors College and the University.


Faculty mentors wishing to propose a fellowship project should complete the Faculty Proposal Form.


Presentations will be held on the first Tuesday of every month at 4 p.m. at the Allen House. Each fellowship presentation should last 10-15 minutes. Sign up for the Honors Fellowship presentation through the Honors Fellowship portal.
