Welcome to the Honors Scholar Program

Florida SouthWestern State College’s Honors Scholar Program offers students an enriched and challenging educational experience that extends learning beyond the classroom. We strive to cultivate academic excellence, skillful leadership, and commitment to social responsibility. As a rigorous, transdisciplinary program, we inspire students to seek out transformative experiences and participate in the world in new ways. To this end, we use a holistic approach to identify and evaluate talented candidates so as not to exclude late-bloomers, non-traditional students, or students who may have met with substantial obstacles which prevented them from developing their full potential prior to their application to the College. This program is best suited for students seeking an AA degree who have not taken more than 30 credit hours.

Some of the benefits include:

  1. $1500 per semester for qualified students
  2. Opportunities to participate in State, Regional, and National Conferences
  3. Opportunities for Study Abroad in partnership with the Center for International Education
  4. Access to smaller classes taught by our most talented professors and attended by our most dedicated students
  5. Seminar style classes which often include hands-on field research


Applications for admission into the program for Fall 2017 are due by February 15th.
