The Honors Program has several scholars to offer first year and Upper Division students. Interested in applying for a scholarship? Be sure to follow all the steps in the application process: 

  1. Get your Coppin State University admission! The University must admit you before we can process your Honors Program application.  

  1. The Office of Admissions sends referral forms for any students who meet Honors Program requirements to the Honors Program Director for review. 

  1. After reviewing the referral forms, we send recruitment letters and application packets to recommended students. 

  1. The Honors Program Director reviews all completed applications, and reaches out to schedule in-person, phone, or video conference interviews with potential students. 

  1. The interviewing committee meets with potential students. After each interview, the committee considers each potential student’s interview results and academic readiness, and sends a recommendation to the Director. 

  1. The Program sends award letters and forms to selected students.

We award Honors Program Scholarships as the Honors Program budget permits. Once a student receives a scholarship, they continue to receive the same level of funding through completion of the Honors Program. Budget limits do not allow us to upgrade scholarships.
