Each year, the Baylor Honors College selects a few exceptional incoming students for the prestigious Getterman Scholars Program. This program is open to high-achieving students across the academic disciplines, especially students interested in an integrated undergraduate liberal arts education that encourages connections between the various disciplines of study, the local and the global, the past and present, and the love of learning and service of God and neighbor.
Selection carries with it a scholarship valued at approximately $60,000 renewable per year, covering tuition, fees, room, and board, along with support for study abroad, research, and mission/service experiences.
Well-qualified students should apply for the program. Finalists are selected to attend an interview weekend to compete for a spot in the program.
Friday and Saturday, January 19-20, 2018
