Honors College

The Honors College challenges students to discover the best in themselves, from critical thinking and curiosity to innovation and comfort with ambiguity. We ask you to help us foster the ground-breaking research, arts and leadership that these students explore before they share their knowledge, experience and skills with their communities.

Fund Designations

Honors College Program Fund - The Honors College Program Fund provides general programmatic support for Honors College initiatives. This can range from student research and engagement, general operating assistance and opportunities for new programming efforts by the college.

Honors College Scholarships Fund - This fund is used to supplement all current Honors College students through scholarship support wherever the need is greatest while recognizing service, leadership, academic excellence and a commitment to liberal arts education.

Honors Learning Community Engagement Scholarship - The Honors College Leadership Council consists of a group of alumni and friends of the Honors College who provide advice and support to the dean, Honors staff and students. Through their support, they have established the Honors Learning Community Engagement Scholarship, which supports Honors students who wish to live in the Honors Learning Community.

Alumni Laureate Scholars Fund - More than just a full tuition scholarship, the Alumni Laureate Scholarship is a unique program that provides scholars with opportunities and experiences including mentors and networking with alumni while learning the value of leadership and service. 

J. Robert Bashore Scholarship - The Bashore Scholarships were established in 1983 and are awarded in honor of a former University professor and director of the Honors College, J. Robert Bashore. The Bashore Scholarships reward students with outstanding academic records who have demonstrated curiosity about ideas beyond the narrow limits of one discipline.

Mayeux Award – Created by longtime BGSU employee Patricia Gangwer Mayeux, this fund is used for prizes to be given annually to that year's best Honors projects.
