Honors at Georgetown College
While there are many Programs of Distinction at Georgetown College (see the menu for more!), there are three basic tracks within the Georgetown College Honors Program: Oxford Honors, Science Honors, and Independent Honors. The Georgetown College Honors Program strives to encourage the intellectual growth of the College community by giving highly motivated students at all levels the opportunity to pursue challenging and stimulating academic and cultural experiences. All Honors Programs require an application and an interview. There will be two opportunities to apply and interview: students submitting an application by November 1st may be invited to interview at the Georgetown Scholars Day on December 1st, 2017, and students submitting an application by February 1st may be invited to interview on February 16th, 2018.
Honors students have many opportunities for friendships and relationships with each other and faculty, helping to form an intellectual coterie through the rigors of college
Students accepted into honors receive $1,000 additional merit scholarship, and funding for many opportunities, including going to Oxford, summer research for science, and honors projects.
One recent grad used her honors project on the environmental impacts of the Rio Olympic games to get into a top Environmental Law program and land an internship with the Sports Environmental Alliance in Australia.
