About the Honors Program

In this Section

The Honors Program at Clarkson University offers an extraordinary learning experience for talented and motivated undergraduates. Every year we invite a new group of 30-40 first-year students and 10-12 rising sophomores to join our community.

Together you will take a unique curriculum designed to leverage your growing knowledge of science, technology, society, business and the environment to forge innovative solutions to real problems.

We provide individual advising and professional coaching, and we help you work on your "soft skills" in order to help you realize personal success and make a difference in the world.

We form a residential community, where sports events, field trips, service activities, movie nights, and ice cream socials, all work to build supportive networks and lifelong friendships.  

All Honors students receive an automatic Honors Scholarship of $2,000 a year.
