The deadline to apply to Penn State’s Schreyer Honors College is just around the corner on January 15. Schreyer is one of the best college honors programs in the country, and it’s open to students at all of Penn State’s campuses in nearly all of our majors.
Students in the program receive a $4,500 per year academic scholarship, access to smaller classes, and more. Schreyer Scholars also complete an undergraduate thesis, which can be a great stepping stone to graduate school.
If those benefits sound intriguing to you, the Schreyer application is available in MyPennState. There is a $30 application fee, and some additional essays and letters of recommendation are required.
Honors college applications are reviewed separately from the regular application for admission to Penn State, so you can still apply to Schreyer if you have already been admitted to Penn State or you are still waiting for a decision. Applying to Schreyer will not hold up your regular application.
Visit the Schreyer website for more information on the application process.
