Invest in Honors

investThe University Honors Program transforms lives. Through a curriculum centered on the development of research abilities, our graduates are ready to develop creative solutions to meet the challenges facing our society. And, through our experiential learning opportunities, they are putting these skills to practice while they are still in college.

In the past 10 years, the Honors Program has assisted over 60 students in achieving nationally competitive scholarships and fellowships like the Goldwater Scholarship, Boren Scholarship, and Fulbright Student Grant. In fact, the national recognition of honors graduates is resulting in increasing numbers of placements in prestigious programs such as the Peace Corps, Teach for America and prestigious graduate programs at schools such as Johns Hopkins University and Harvard University.

An investment in honors is an investment that pays huge dividends–it transforms the lives of our students and transforms the reputation and stature of Georgia Southern University. The foundation of honors is strong and the growth potential is tremendous. Generous support from our alumni and friends continues to enable our students to excel.

Donations to the Honors Fund support scholarships and other opportunities for honors students. The Honors Undergraduate Research Fund provides critical financial support for honors student research and creative projects. Your gift can be designated for one of these important funds.

You can make a tax deductible donation through our on-line form.  Or, if you would like to discuss other options for support or learn more about the students and faculty that make this such a special place to learn and develop, you are welcome to contact Dr. Steven Engel to schedule an appointment to visit campus.
