Athens State will launch a new Honors Program this fall with a mission to attract and provide honor students with an opportunity to be engaged in robust interdisciplinary academics and related programming that intentionally develops their curiosity and propels them toward their future careers as citizens of a global community.
Students participating in the Athens State University Honors Program will be required to participate in professional growth activities with their cohort such as community service; diversity and inclusion initiatives, seminars, and workshops; and co-curricular projects with other honors organizations at Athens State. They will also be required to complete an original research, service-learning, or work-based Honors Project over the course of 18 months.
Students participating in the Honors Program will receive a travel stipend for presenting at or attending a professional conference and will graduate with an Honors designation on their transcript after successful completion of their Honors Project. For more information, visit www.athens.edu/honors.
