Founded in 1924, Alpha Lambda Delta is an honor society for students in their first year at an institution of higher education. We recognize those students who have succeeded in maintaining a 3.5 or higher GPA, and are in the top 20% of their class, in their first year.
An annual literary and arts publication comprised of exceptional work completed by undergraduate Honors students from within the Mid-East Honors Association (MEHA) region, Honors students at Kent State University edit and publish the entire magazine.
Students with excellent academic records should consider applying for a nationality competitive scholarship or fellowship. The fellowships listed here are intensely competitive, but serious applicants reap plentiful rewards from the process. Students with high academic excellence, and evidence of leadership, community service and/ or research experience should seriously consider applying for a fellowship.
Each year faculty members who themselves were chosen for membership in Phi Beta Kappa at their undergraduate institutions meet and discuss exceptional Kent State students in the liberal arts. There are over half a million members, but only about 10 percent of the nation's institutions of higher learning have Phi Beta Kappa chapters and only about 10 percent of the arts and sciences graduates at these institutions are selected for membership. Membership shows commitment to the liberal arts and sciences and provides a competitive edge in the marketplace. Students elected to membership participate in an initiation ceremony each spring.

The Honors College has several scholarships available exclusively to Honors College students. Currently enrolled Honors College students must meet the eligibility requirements specific to each scholarship for which they are applying (and be in good standing with the Honors College). Students may apply for one or more scholarships. Please do not apply for a scholarship for which you are not fully qualified.
