Honors Scholarships/Opportunities

Honors Program Scholarships

Each year, scholarships are awarded to a select number of incoming and current honors students. Requirements to qualify to receive this scholarship include being a full-time enrolled honors student, and demonstrating financial need (FAFSA verified).

As a scholarship recipient, the student agrees to:

  1. Earn 10 engagement points* each semester
  2. Meet with the Honors Director, in person, once each semester
  3. Earn 3 honors credits each semester
  4. Maintain good standing with the Honors Program and Southern Utah University

*Engagement Points: Students receive 1 point per community service hour completed, 1 point per academic SUU activity attended, and 2 points per honors activity attended. All points must be earned during the academic semester. Students who are not enrolled receiving honors credits must earn double engagement points. Points are tracked through Canvas.

Honors Program Student Grants

The SUU Honors Program offers a limited number of small in-house grants in support of select campus and honors activities.

Undergraduate Research Grants

Funding is available to assist honors students in academic or creative projects. These projects are usually pursued under the direction of a faculty mentor and honors grants are meant to leverage additional funding from other grant programs and agencies.

Financial Aid Scholarships

Financial Aid scholarships are available to all honors students who demonstrate financial need.

Travel to Conferences

The program is anxious to support honors students who have excelled in their academic or creative pursuits. When students have papers/presentations accepted for dissemination at a peer-reviewed conference or other venue they can apply for funding to defray part of the expense including travel, lodging and registration fees.

Partners in the Parks Grants

The SUU Honors Program sponsors a nation-wide outdoor experiential learning program in cooperation with the National Park Service and the national Collegiate Honors Council. SUU honors students can apply for a limited number of stipends to cover registration costs to participate in this amazing program.
