Scholarships

For Incoming Students

Through the generosity of our donors, Lloyd International Honors College is able to award several scholarships in incoming, first-year students each year. All students who submit their UNCG AND Supplemental Honors College applications will be considered for the scholarships listed below. Students who submit applications by the priority deadline of December 1, 2020 will also be considered for the Blue and Gold Scholarships awarded by UNCG.

The Scholars Program

The Honors College awards the prestigious Katharine Smith Reynolds Scholarship, which is made possible by the Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation of Winston-Salem for North Carolina residents, and the Class of ’55 Scholarship, endowed by the Woman’s College of the University of North Carolina’s graduating class of 1955. Both scholarships receive four years of generous funding ($8000 per year) and are eligible to receive stipends for community service involvement ($1250), participation in an internship ($1250), and study abroad ($2500*).

*This amount is in lieu of the regular LIHC travel scholarship, currently $1,100 for a UNCG semester-long study away experience.

Once the application is submitted, students in contention for the Reynolds or Class of ’55 Scholarship will be contacted to schedule a brief phone interview. After the phone interview, finalists will be invited for a Zoom interview with Honors College and UNCG community members. Scholarship offers will be made throughout the application cycle.
