Honors at Georgetown College
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. Please see the Programs of Distinction page for more information on due dates. While students are encouraged to apply for any of these three honors tracks, they can only receive the scholarship and funding for one of the three tracks.
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 the honors program in any of the three tracks 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.
