Honors Scholarships & Funding Opportunities

There are a number of types of funding available to students at Towson University. Most are available to all students, with some limited just to Honors students. Their research interests and academic engagement of Honors students sets them apart, and Honors students are often highly competitive for all distinguished awards.

The primary scholarship available to Honors College students is the Honors College Scholarship, which is awarded to most incoming freshmen and transfer students who join TU and the Honors College in a fall term. Additionally, there are also awards just for Honors students involved in study abroad, service-learning, and supporting marginalized communities. All Honors-only awards are listed on the Honors College Scholarships page.

Honors students have also been successful recipients of national and international awards in areas such as research, public service, and language acquisition. Honors advisors connect interested students with the Office of Competitive Fellowships & Awards to learn more about opportunities and prepare applications.
