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.
