Citizen Scholars Program

The College of Arts & Letters has created the Citizen Scholars program to attract a diverse, ambitious student body, enrich the undergraduate experience, and ensure the retention and academic success of our students. Support these high-achieving, civically engaged undergraduates who will become the next generation of inclusive, ethical collaborators, and leaders in our society.

Steps to Success: This program supports those who work hard and who are determined to succeed.

  • Aspiration: Aspiring Citizen Scholars complete challenging courses, engage with diverse communities in and beyond the University, broaden their cultural experience, and achieve academic excellence. Careful mentoring and guidance support student success as they aspire.

  • Beyond Honors: Students then meet elevated expectations and bring their enriched knowledge and skills to bear on our most significant social questions and issues in real-world contexts.

  • Reward: Successful Citizen Scholars are rewarded with $5,000 of funding to support high-impact learning experiences like:
    • Study abroad and study away
    • Internships
    • Undergraduate research
