Honors Study Abroad


Global Awareness

As one of the five areas of development we find important for Honors students, we hope that each honors student will participate in one abroad experience before they graduate. Honors students gain an awareness of issues in a global context, preparing them for the diverse world in which they will live and work. Not only do we offer our own Hicks Abroad experiences, but we also offer travel grants that can be applied to any study abroad experience, within or outside of the Hicks Honors College.

Study Abroad Scholarship Applications

The Hicks Honors College sponsors a number of competitive grants to award funds to students for a variety of opportunities that will benefit the University by enhancing its reputation as a premier undergraduate institution of higher education. Additionally, there are grants available for faculty for their efforts to improve the quality of intellectual life on campus.

Beginning Fall 2020 the UNF Foundation Scholarships office has implemented a new scholarship management system, Academic Works, that allows students to view their eligible scholarships, apply online and manage the acceptance process.  To be considered for Honors Scholarships and Foundation Scholarships please follow the instructions on the Foundation Scholarships webpage.  

Undergraduate Travel

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 Scholarship.

Students can apply for the Honors Study Abroad Scholarship by filling out the application in Academic Works.  You must provide answers to the 10 supplemental questions on the application and have a UNF 3.2 GPA currently.  For more information regarding the application process, please call the Honors front desk at 904-620-2649 or email
