Honors program annual fund
The Annual Fund is the engine that drives the Honors Program.
It helps support our mission to provide students with a rigorous and rewarding undergraduate experience.
Each year, the Annual Fund makes it possible for students to participate in research, travel-study, and internships. It also facilitates numerous student organizations that are making a difference on campus and are facilitating the growth and development of our students.
The Annual Fund can accept gifts of all sizes, and all are important in making our programming and scholarship stipends possible.
Every gift, no matter the size, will enrich the academic and extracurricular experiences of students in the Honors Program.
To everyone who has already contributed to our Annual Fund, thank you. Please help us by maintaining your support. If you have not yet made a gift to the Annual Fund, please strongly consider participating. Your support is vital to the continued success of the Honors Program and its students.

A gift of $5,000 provides a year of funding for Roosevelt, a student-run think-tank that is helping to cultivate leaders in our student body by engaging them in meaningful debate about politics, policy, and government and encouraging them to take action to reshape their communities.
