How Gifts to Commonwealth Honors College Make a Difference

 

Annual gifts like yours support individual students and the programs that distinguish honors education. Every annual gift we receive helps to:

  • Support an economically diverse student body. Honors scholarships and awards offset financial need, reward academic excellence, and create opportunities.
  • Support student research. Our students pursue research with faculty and write theses. Commonwealth Honors College funds underwrite honors research projects.
  • Inspire students to think big. We connect students to faculty, visiting lecturers, and campus resources through innovative programs.

When we come together - as alumni, parents, friends, students, and staff - as donors, it is amazing what we can accomplish. Join us to support honors students today!
