The Honors Program provides students with opportunities to advance their education through innovation, rigor, and community. Honors is ideal for students wishing to maximize their educational growth while at Gallaudet University, especially to gain admission to graduate school or to improve their employment prospects after graduation. Honors students have succeeded in dramatic fashion, with all of our Capstone alumni being admitted to the graduate school of their top choice. These schools range from the University of Iowa to Georgetown University to Sotheby's Institute of Art in London.
Honors maximizes a student's experience by recruiting and cultivating top faculty, building an Honors academic community, and providing students with as many quality opportunities as possible. Such opportunities include presenting at national and regional academic conferences, attending seminars throughout our nation's Capital, hosting student events throughout the semester, and developing Honors contracts with intensive learning goals for a course of their choosing.
Students wishing to apply to Honors should check out the Honors Program website and contact firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an interview. Students accepted to the Honors Program will receive either the President's Honors Distinction Scholarship or the Provost's Honors Distinction Scholarship. Incoming Honors (and Bridge to Honors) students are required to participate in the summer discussion board and Honors Orientation, in addition to New Student Orientation.
