Honors

The WVU Honors College offers an amazing set of opportunities. Our interdisciplinary, customized learning pathways feature smaller class sizes and access to innovative Honors courses that provide hands-on learning and research experience.

 

Why we need your support

In August we welcomed our second record-breaking freshman class of 900+ students. We are also preparing to launch our Upper Division program in 2019, which will grow Honors to an immersive, four-year experience.

Your support will directly help our students take intellectual risks, make discoveries, participate in exciting, cutting-edge research, engage in community-based learning and find their passion.

 

How you can help

  • Greatest Needs
    By donating to the University Honors Program Fund you are directly supporting academic exploration through the Honors curriculum, experiential learning including research and internship opportunities and other programs offered through our living and learning communities.
     
  • Scholarships
    Provides scholarships to support experiential learning through internship, research or travel abroad.

The funds listed need your support, but a gift in any amount to any program matters as we seek to enhance skills and challenge our students to ask questions, seek impossible answers and delve into the unknown.

Your generosity provides momentum to turn challenges into incredible opportunities to transform the future and shape the lives of our students.
