Scholarships for Current Students
Most Honors College scholarships are awarded to incoming students on the basis of merit and need. A limited amount of scholarship money is available for current students who have maintained a high level of academic achievement (normally, a minimum 3.5 GPA) and who have demonstrated financial need. Priority will be given to students who have experienced a change in their financial situation that makes it difficult for them to continue at Baylor. Students are also encouraged to consult with their financial aid counselors and visit One Stop Student Financial Services.
Honors Residential College (HRC) Leadership Scholarship:
The HRC Leadership Scholarship is open to any returning resident of the residential college serving on the community's leadership team. Second-year students who are awarded a scholarship will receive up to $1,000. Third and fourth-year students will receive up to $2,000.
Study Abroad Scholarships:
The Honors College offers some scholarship money, awarded on the basis of merit and need, for students studying abroad in Wintermester or Summer courses taught by Honors College faculty.
Current students who are engaged in research may apply for Honors College Travel Stipends.
