Honors & Scholarships

Honors Scholars Program

The Honors Scholars Program requires a minimum GPA of 3.4 and completion of 12 or more credits. Apply

As an active member of the Honors Scholars Program, you will be eligible to take part in a wide variety of opportunities, including:

  • A collaborative community. A shared academic experience is enhanced by extracurricular activities.
  • To be nominated for the National Society of Collegiate Scholars (NSCS).
  • To develop professional contacts both locally (since today’s high-achieving City Tech’s students are often tomorrow’s highly placed professionals) and nationally (through NSCS membership and participation in its activities). In uncertain economic times such as these, developing a professional network can greatly enhance your ability to meet your professional and other life goals even after you have completed your City Tech career.
  • Honors courses. Opportunities for independent work on an honors project in regular courses (honors in a regular course), and honors distinction noted on your transcript. Coursework is more challenging and students often report they are more engaged in these classes.
  • To engage in original work. Honors scholars develop original projects that investigate significant research questions, create unique artistic works, undertake interdisciplinary studies, and design original concepts to meet societal needs.
  • Academic support. Online modules and other educational opportunities are offered each semester, such as our Game Jams, NSCS Networking, “Public Speaking Refresher” workshop, Earth Day Community Service, and Student Academic Conference.
  • Graduate school prep, including workshops and an annual graduate school fair.
  • Early registration. Be among the first students to enroll in courses.

If you have any questions, please contact the Director of the Honors Scholars Program, Dr. Reneta D. Lansiquot.
