AU Honors | Admission


Application Process

To apply for the AU Honors Program, students complete the Honors program application, which is available here. The deadline is December 15.

Review Process

The program seeks students from every major to create a fully interdisciplinary team of 25 students. Grades and standardized scores are important, but most important is demonstrated interest in interdisciplinary approaches to problem solving. Ultimately, we are looking to build a strong team who can work well together on the projects they will pursue through this one-of-a-kind program. Notification of acceptance to the program will be April 1.

Note: All Frederick Douglass Distinguished Scholars also participate in the AU Honors Program.

Merit Scholarship

Each enrolled student as of Fall 2016 will receive a $20,000 AU merit award and a $10,000 Honors scholarship every year. The scholarship is renewable for a total of four years of undergraduate study, provided students satisfy academic performance and program requirements.
