Supporting Honors Courses Course Development & Enhancement Awards

The Schreyer Honors College offers Course Development/Enhancement Awards to support the design, development and improvement of honors courses for our Schreyer Scholars. Faculty members seeking to develop new honors courses or enhance existing honors courses are encouraged to submit a proposal.

These awards may be used to develop or enhance a course, secure course materials, support the involvement of special guest speakers, to fund related travel or research costs, to assist students, or some combination thereof. The award must contribute directly to the development and implementation of an approved honors course to be offered in the upcoming year.

I really enjoy being around other Scholars and focusing on things that don’t necessarily get brought up on a daily basis. For example, we’ve talked about Afghanistan and refugees and mental illness. It’s really nice how Scholars come together and talk about ideas. Everyone just respects each other. Everyone just wants to support each other and push each other, making sure everyone is doing their best.
