 Purposeful engagement with extraordinary challenge requires us to know ourselves as well as we know our disciplines.

The Fellows Project was established to not only identify and reward the most thoughtful, curious and motivated Honors students early on in their education, but to create a space where each Fellow is challenged to develop a knowledge of the self that will deepen their intellectual life,
strengthen their engagement with their academic community and foster authenticity and confidence in
their personal and professional relationships.

Each spring semester, eligible students are invited to apply to be a part of the Fellows Project. The
application process involves a written application, faculty recommendation and for the approximately 20 to 25 first and second year students selected as finalists, an in-depth interview.
