Scholarship Opportunities

Bellavance Scholars

The Thomas E. Bellavance Honors Program provides annual scholarships for incoming freshman that range from $1,000 to $2,000 (renewable up to four years).  Students are selected based on academic accomplishments and a written essay that is part of their application to the Honors College. To be considered for Honors College scholarships, students must submit by the priority scholarship deadline. Beginning in 2013, the recipients of these scholarships were designated the name “Bellavance Scholars” in recognition of Thomas and Elizabeth Bellavance, who were great supporters of the Honors Program and in whose honor the endowment for these scholarships is named.  Bellavance Scholars are required to maintain a 3.5 GPA and remain active in the Honors Program, demonstrating successful progress toward graduating with full university honors.  They are recognized each year at the Honors Spring Banquet and their names appear on a large plaque that is publicly displayed in the Honors Center.
