Hicks Honors College Fellows Program

Hicks Fellows are honors students who receive a prestigious Hicks-funded fellowship in order to carry out unique educational experiences such as, but not limited to, research assistance duties, travel to conferences, participation in career-focused internships, Honors in the Major requirements, etc. Although award amounts may vary, Hicks Fellows generally receive as much as $1000 of funding per year ($500 per semester) for up to four years.

Study Abroad Scholarships

The Hicks Honors College offers significant scholarships for study abroad experiences.  Honors students are eligible for funding for Honors-sponsored trips or other types of study abroad (though no more than two awards can be granted per person).  Note that funding for domestic travel (to conferences, internships, etc.) is normally done through the Hicks Fellows Program.
