University Honors Scholars Program

The University Honors Scholars Program

The University Honors Scholars Program at Northern Illinois University seeks to enable a select number of academically distinguished students to complete an outstanding University Honors Capstone project during their senior year. It provides University Honors students with the time, financial support, and faculty mentoring to pursue in-depth, meaningful research and artistry related to the University Honors Capstone in the summer between their junior and senior years. The summer research or artistry project is intended to create a solid foundation for the Honors Capstone. Scholars hold the prestigious title “University Honors Scholar” during their senior year.
