E&H Honors Program Application

The Emory & Henry College’s Honors Program is not only for many of the college’s most accomplished scholars, but also for those who are performers, tutors, athletes, and the leaders of the college’s many clubs and organizations.

The Honors Program has Honors Scholarship Day when you can interview for the program and meet our current scholars. Our next interview day is February 24, 2024, and we are always ready to meet you when you come to campus.

Our program is active in the National Collegiate Honors Council, the National Society for Minorities in Honors, and the Virginia Collegiate Honors Council.

As a member institution of the National Collegiate Honors Council, our program supports your independent research as you write a senior thesis, and earn an NCHC HonorsDegree.

If you’re coming to the Emory Campus to audition, meet a coach, visit the Equestrian Center, or just look around, let us know. We will arrange to meet you and your family and set up an official interview for a place in the program.

To apply, fill out the form below to add an essay and have at least one teacher recommendation sent to the college.
