How to Apply

All students who want to apply to the honors program must first apply to Emory & Henry College and indicate an interest in the Honors Program on your college application. Upon being admitted into Emory & Henry, those students who are identified as potential candidates are invited to Scholarship Day to interview for the Honors Program. Admissions decisions are made based on an interview process, and all students must interview. 

Each year, we only admit up to 26 first-year Honors Scholars. Due to the limited slots, submit your college application before November 15 so that you can interview on the Winter Scholarship Day. Students who apply early will find out whether or not they have been awarded a top merit scholarship by no later than December 31. The number of slots available at our Spring Scholarship Day will depend on the response rate of December offers.

If you are unable to attend in person on either one of the Scholarship & Audition dates, a Skype interview can be arranged. Please make sure to contact your admissions counselor, or call the Honors Program Office at 276.944.6266.
