An Honors College Student Fellowship is a $1,000 award given to an Honors College Student who focuses on a scholarly project for 100 hours. The student does not work in isolation, but is voluntarily supported by a mentor. Projects vary and may be one of the following six types:
research, creativity, reading, service-learning, curating, or entrepreneurship.
At the end of the fellowship the student must give a public presentation. Awards are credited to the student's tuition and fee bill as we seek to reduce student debt.
The Honors College will award 100 FY19 Honores College Student Fellowships.

We are so very grateful for donors who are sponsoring these FY19 fellowships:
The Honors College is now accepting applications for Honors College Student Fellowships for 100 hours of scholarly activity performed anytime between July 1, 2018 through June 30, 2019 (FY19). A student may apply for more than one fellowship. However, it is not likely that a single student will receive more than one fellowship in a given year. We recommend that students submit their application as soon as possible.
Through these student fellowships, the Honors College wishes to cultivate academic relationships that bring undergraduate students and faculty together. Perhaps an honors fellowship will grow into a full Honors Project?
To apply, the applicant must complete two separate steps:
Step 1: Apply online through Academic Works at uml.academicworks.com between February 1, 2018 and October 31, 2018. To complete this step you must accomplish two sub-steps. They are:
(a) complete the General Application within Academic Works and
(b) click on "apply" when the Honors Scholarhip Endowment opportunity is recommended and follow the instructions.
Step 2: By navigating the TABs on this website, identify one or more fellowships you are interested in. For each fellowship, print out a paper copy of this FY19 Honors College Fellowship Application. fill it out, and slide it beneath Jim Canning's office door (O'Leary 302).
To apply for FY19 Honors College Fellowships after October 31st, follow Step 2 only.
When the Honors College reviews applications for its Student Fellowships it determines if the proposed student fellowship satisfies at least one of these two goals:
Our #1 fundraising priority is to raise enough money to award one-hundred $1,000 Honors College Fellowships during the FY19 fiscal year (July 1, 2018 through June 30, 2019). Every donated dollar is 100% matched by a program we have in place and the entire amount is given to an honors student who will dedicate themselves to a scholarly endeavor for one hundred hours.
We thank all Honors College donors. Your support of our students is special to us.
