The University Honors Program is dedicated to providing its students with the resources they need to support and enrich their studies.
To complement the scholarships and merit aid that University Honors students may receive as they enter the university as first-time students, the University Honors Program offers several awards and scholarships to its students that can be applied towards global experiences, opportunities for undergraduate research and creative endeavors, and the presentation of research at national or international conferences. Honors students also have access to many other scholarships and resources made available through Northeastern, including the Office of Undergraduate Research and Fellowships.
The University Honors Program awards scholarships applicable to tuition expenses through the George Alden Trust, the Amelia Peabody Scholarship Fund, and the Joseph A. Coolidge Award.
