To apply for the AU Honors Program, students complete the Honors program application. The priority deadline for a special academic program is December 15. Applications will be accepted until January 10.
The program seeks students from every major to create a fully interdisciplinary team of 25 students. Grades and standardized scores are important, but most important is demonstrated interest in interdisciplinary approaches to problem solving. Ultimately, we are looking to build a strong team who can work well together on the projects they will pursue through this one-of-a-kind program. Notification of acceptance to the program will be April 1.
Note: All Frederick Douglass Distinguished Scholars also participate in the AU Honors Program.
Each enrolled student as of Fall 2016 will receive a $20,000 AU merit award and a $10,000 Honors scholarship every year. The scholarship is renewable for a total of four years of undergraduate study, provided students satisfy academic performance and program requirements.
