Honors Scholars

The Northern Illinois University (NIU) University Honors program designed Honors Scholars for junior or senior University Honors students who are working on their Honors Capstone project. Through the program, a select number of academically distinguished students will be given time, financial support, and faculty mentoring to pursue their research or artistry to create a solid foundation for the Honors Capstone. Students in the program will pursue in-depth research or artistry in the summer between their junior and senior years or during their senior year. Scholars hold the prestigious title “University Honors Scholar”.
