Eagle Scholars Honors Program
If you are looking for a collegiate community that will broaden your intellectual horizons, deepen your Christian faith, and reward your academic strengths, Northwestern’s Eagle Scholars Honor Program may be for you.
Become an Eagle Scholar
Honors students are “interested in everything” and strive for excellence. We seek students who value strong academic achievement, intellectual curiosity, leadership and engagement, and a mission to serve God and others.
My first year as an eagle scholar has pushed me to be better and has given me a lot of confidence in my own ability as a student. It has started me on the right path for applying to medical school, and it has shown me the value that good critical thinking skills can bring to a conversation.
The Honors Program community extends beyond those who are currently enrolled. Achievement of graduates inspires me to pursue ambitious goals. The accolades and adventures of alumni are many and diverse–awards, jobs at prestigious companies, publications, enrollment in graduate programs, company startups, and cross-cultural experiences. I am inspired by their success.
My experience in the Honors Program has broadened my horizons in all areas of life. I learned and practiced different methods of defending my faith, I began critically analyzing world events, and I became interested in everything.
