Honors and Scholars Programs

Opportunities for exceptional students

Ashland University is home to two programs specifically designed to enrich the college experience for students of exceptional academic ability: The AU Honors Program and The Ashbrook Scholar Program.

The Ashland University Honors Program offers academically talented undergraduate students cross-disciplinary experiences, participation in an intellectual community devoted to discussion and dialogue, and special projects and courses that challenge the mind.  Honors Program participants receive up to a $1,500 scholarship that is renewable annually.

The Ashbrook Scholar Program was created to give exceptional students studying political science, history, pre-law, international relations, or social studies education an immersion in the works of our greatest thinkers and statesmen along with access to well-known speakers who visit campus. Recent guests have included George Will, Colin Powell, George W. Bush and many others. Ashbrook Scholars receive up to a $2,000 scholarship that is renewable annually.
