The Honors Fellows Program is a competitive opportunity extended to typically 20-25 first-year students. It includes an additional $2,500 scholarship renewable for a second year.
Candidates for The Honors Fellows Program are identified based on materials from the student's admission file, such as GPA, test scores, application essay and list of involvements. You must be admitted to Calvin by January 1 to be considered for this special opportunity.
If you are identified as a candidate, you will be invited to attend The Honors Fellows Preview Weekend in early March (a $200 travel voucher will be provided). During the weekend, you will have the opportunity to interview for The Honors Fellows Program. Twenty participants from this weekend event will be awarded the Honors Fellows Scholarship and invited to participate in the program.
