Dedicated to promoting scholarship, leadership and service
The Honors Program involves undergraduate students in every major and every class level who come from a variety of backgrounds and have diverse interests. Honors students benefit from small rigorous classes, excellent teaching, and exciting research, study abroad, and internship opportunities. Students also participate in special social, cultural, and community service activities.
Key to attracting these students is providing specific scholarship support through the Honors Program and increasing the Honors Program endowment. By making a gift to the Honors Program you are supporting students who possess unusual talent, curiosity and drive. Your gift will help provide them with a highly stimulating education and a congenial community that will foster their scholarly development.
Support the Honors Program through these general funds:
- Honors Program Scholarship Fund
Contributions to support merit scholarships for incoming Honors Program students. These scholarships are vital for recruiting the best and brightest freshmen to Shippensburg.
- Honors Program Colloquium Fund
Contributions to support Honors Program interdisciplinary service-learning projects around the world. Currently, Honors students are working to sustain an educational project in the Dominican Republic, where they implemented a bilingual language arts and technology curriculum that they designed for children from low-income families.
- Honors Program Study Abroad Scholarship Fund
Contributions to support scholarships for Honors Program students who desire to expand their academic experience and cultural horizons by studying abroad. Our students’ destinations have included England, Spain, France, Australia, China, and South Korea.
