The Honors Program

Maximize Educational Options

Leadership Opportunities

Honors not only provides a multitude of leadership opportunities within the program itself, but also connects across campus to provide students with leadership opportunities within the larger community as well. A primary criteria when applying for scholarships, fellowships, and jobs is the leadership experience of a student, therefore we have made it a priority to make sure that all students are aware of, and are pursuing, opportunities available to them.

Research Opportunities

The Honors Program is dedicated to cultivating student scholars at the university. To that end, all students are encouraged to engage in undergraduate research within their majors or areas of interest.

Education Abroad

A large percentage of our students explore specialized topics within their field through an Education Abroad experience. The EA office here at UK works closely with the Academy to challenge students to reach their fullest potential in new and diverse environments.
