Honors Program Application Deadline Extended

Kent State University at Tuscarawas has extended the application deadline to July 1 for their Honors Program, which is part of the highly acclaimed Kent State University Honors College.  Scholarship funds are also available for qualified applicants.

The Honors Program at Kent State Tuscarawas provides motivated and academically talented undergraduate students with creative learning opportunities to enhance their educational experiences. The program also offers diverse educational opportunities that allow students to have close interaction with their peers as well as their faculty.

"The dedicated and distinguished faculty at Kent State Tuscarawas offer our Honors students a  wide range of  enriched learning opportunities through various academic programs, and help prepare them to excel in the job market, graduate programs and professional schools,” said Dr. Lovejoy Das, professor of mathematical sciences and Honors Program coordinator. “The honors courses are different from traditional university courses. In fact, honors courses are different in their approach. They seek the methods of inquiry and discovery.”

The Honors Program prepares students to take on leadership roles at an early stage of their educational career through a wide range of academic programs such as the Freshman Honors Colloquium, individual research, community service, a senior portfolio, internships and study abroad experiences at Florence, Italy; Leicester, England; and Northern Ireland.

“I am delighted to mention that now, Kent State Tuscarawas offers 15 new tuition scholarships for $1500 per year over the period of four years to our full-time Honors students,” added Das. “These competitive awards are renewable each academic year. There is also seamless transfer to the Kent Campus if the Honors students choose to do so."    

 According to Dr. Brad Bielski, dean and chief administrative officer at Kent State Tuscarawas, “Our Honors students benefit from small, interactive classes and personal interaction with our highly credentialed faculty. The professors are dedicated to developing critical thinking skills and stimulating intellectual curiosity. Students can choose to participate in university-funded research. And graduates of the Honors College have their achievements recognized at commencement and on their transcripts.”

Applicants to this selective program will be considered based on the following criteria: high school and/or college GPA, ACT/SAT composite score, 250-word essay submission, resume of activities, achievements and leadership roles, and high school class standing.
