Students admitted to the USA Honors Program each spring may be eligible to receive a four-year Frederick P. Whiddon Scholarship in the amount below. Frederick P. Whiddon Scholarships are awarded only to U.S. citizens and Permanent Residents of the United States. Scholarships may be applied to tuition, fees, on-campus room and board, and books and supplies purchased at the university bookstore. Scholarships apply to the academic year and summer term (if a balance remains). Students accepted into the Honors Program at other times of the academic year are eligible to apply for scholarships in the next spring application period.
NOTE: As with all university scholarships, recipients whose GPA falls below 3.0 will have their scholarships terminated.
Please Note: Because Admission to the Honors Program is extremely competitive, interested students are encouraged to follow the application procedures for the University of South Alabama Presidential Scholarships which have an earlier deadline of December 1 . This will make you eligible for consideration for these scholarships. If you are awarded a Presidential Scholarship and subsequently are accepted to the Honors Program and receive a Frederick P. Whiddon Scholarship, then your previously awarded USA Presidential Scholarship will be voided. For information on applying for the Presidential Scholarships, please contact the Office of Admissions (800) 872-5247 or (251) 460-6141), or visit
