Yes, Once a student is awarded an honors scholarship in conjunction with being accepted into the program, their scholarship will be granted to them for the duration while they are enrolled in their degree program so long as they maintain the Honors program requirements.

Crown’s Honors program requires a minimum of three years to complete. In some cases where students have two full years completed, they may choose add a third year to their program in order to participate in Crown Honors. This also offers opportunity for the student to add a second major or a second minor.

The Honors program will cover any costs associated with the Fall honors retreat, and community activities/events. Students will be responsible for covering their own textbook costs and the built-in course fee for HON 330: Honors Study Abroad. This course will be taken the third year that students are enrolled in the Honors program. The course fee will cover all travel expenses to the study abroad location and while on location, as well as food, lodging, and other costs associated with the course. The course fee varies depending on the location. The estimated cost for a European location is $2800. Students will be notified of the final course fee costs the Fall semester before the course runs (that next Spring). Upon acceptance into the program, students are encouraged to begin saving/planning for the HON 330 course fee.
