Plan II Honors Scholarships

Plan II Honors is able to offer a small amount of scholarships to incoming students. These Plan II Honors scholarships are awarded primarily on a financial need-basis, however some scholarships are awarded strictly for merit.  Most awards range from $1,000 to $5,000 for an academic year, although a few larger awards are available.

Please note that the majority of our available scholarships are for continuing students.  Incoming Freshmen will be able to apply for these scholarships the Spring semester of their freshmen year.  These typically range in the $2,000 to $5,000 for an academic year.  Plan II also has travel grants, scholarships for study abroad expeirences, as well as thesis grants.  For more informaiton on scholarship opportunities for current students, check out the scholarship information here.
