Regents Scholar Programs

What is RSP?

The Regents Scholars Program accepts 20 incoming freshman each fall and provides a competitive scholarship to off-set tuition, fees, room and board. Students are selected from the Honors College application and interview process. The program encourages students to pursue a bachelor’s degree in their chosen field while working to develop a greater sense of self awareness and international trends and issues. A focused curriculum culminates in a junior-year study abroad course. In addition, RSP provides scholars with leadership training and experiences which encourage them to think of themselves as change agents- both on campus and in their future profession.
