UNCG’s Lloyd International Honors College currently awards the prestigious Katharine Smith Reynolds Scholarship, the distinguished Class of ‘55 Scholarship, the Barbara C. Carter and Hal B. Phillips, Jr. Scholarship, the Esther Koonce Lamy and Mary Rebecca Lamy Merit Scholarship, and the new Sloan Endowed Scholarship and Brad and Kim Hayes Annual Merit Scholarship in the Honors College. All scholarships work together to foster a community of scholars who strive to succeed in and out of the classroom.
Honors Scholars Program scholars are selected on the basis of superior academic achievement and potential evidence of moral force of character, qualities of leadership and interest in others, and motivation toward useful purposes in life.
Scholars participate in programming coordinated through Lloyd International Honors College to build community, plan and execute their service and internship experiences, and develop plans for a rounded and meaningful undergraduate experience. Scholars receive one-on-one mentoring with Assistant Dean Dr. Muich, a personalized developmental plan, access to various workshops covering a wide variety of topics, free tickets to UNCG Theater shows, and so much more!
Qualities of a Successful Honors Scholar
Students who win an Honors Scholars Program scholarship join a community of engaged and curious scholars. Most Honors Scholars Program scholarships offer additional stipends or funding for impactful experiences like study abroad, internships, and community service projects. Scholars may work with the Scholarship Coordinator to find the opportunities that are best suited to their interests and provide the most opportunities for growth. Students who have already used one of their stipends share their experiences:
“My career goal overall is the same trajectory as it was at the very beginning of this internship experience, but I see more variety and growth from it … I plan on using the exposure and realizations I had here to benefit my educational plans and motivate me to continue my schooling beyond even a masters degree. I also can’t wait to look more into the different areas I can apply my degree(s) towards.” — Charlotte Kohn (Internship: Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department, Crime Scene Investigation Unit)
“One of the things that surprised me most … was how interested Mr. Kolosieke [the CFO of Habitat for Humanity Greater Greensboro] was in what I wanted to get out of this experience. It was encouraging to know that although I would ultimately be working for free, Mr. Kolosieke and the rest of the staff would try their best to make sure I was learning valuable skills, and adding to my professional development.” — Jordan Lopez (Community Service: Habitat for Humanity Greater Greensboro)
