Zooming with our alum Colin Christensen

Although there are still challenges facing high school seniors who plan to enter college in the fall of 2023, we will make applying to the Honors Program as personal as possible.

The Emory & Henry College Honors Program is active in the National Collegiate Honors Council (NCHC), the National Society for Minorities in Honors (NSFMIH), and the Virginia Collegiate Honors Council (VCHC).

Our Honors students have too many benefits and opportunities to briefly list here, so please review the “About” and “Benefits” pages.

The Honors Program admission process is based on a holistic review of each student’s application. First, complete your application to the College. Once you receive the email letting you know that you have been accepted to Emory & Henry, you can begin working on your application to the Honors Program. 

If you have already been accepted to the college (Congratulations!), the next step is to apply to the Honors Program. Once you complete this form, we’ll contact you.

Honors Program Scholarship Application

The Honors Program hosts scholarship days when you can interview for the program and meet our current scholars. The next Honors Program Scholarship Day is February 18, 2023, on campus.

We are always happy to meet you and conduct our interviews if you are coming to campus at other times, especially if you’re traveling from a great distance to audition, make contact with a coach, try out for a team, or other reasons as well. We’ll do our best to work with you! 

“Honors is the family where I found my place on campus and my voice in the classroom. It is the place where I have been able to grow as a leader and foster my connections with both students and faculty, on and off campus. The Honors Program stands as the main tenant of my life and college experience.”

—Layne Hubble, Class of 2020
