Honors in the Major Scholarship Information

Each academic college at UCF (Arts and Humanities, Business Administration, Education, Engineering and Computer Science, Health and Public Affairs, Hospitality Management, Medicine, Nursing, the Office of Undergraduate Studies, and Sciences), and the Cocoa, Daytona Beach, Palm Bay, and Western regional campuses offer a limited number of $1,000 scholarships on a competitive basis to students pursuing Honors in the Major during the Fall and Spring semesters. Students are encouraged to contact the HIM Coordinator of his or her college or campus about the application process and deadlines. In order to be eligible for the Honors in the Major scholarship, students must:

  • Be enrolled in Honors in the Major coursework (Honors Directed Readings or Thesis) in the semester that the student applies for the scholarship
  • Not been awarded an Honors in the Major scholarship in a previous semester
  • Must be working on his or her thesis (i.e. thesis has not been completed and submitted to the UCF library for publication)


An Honors in the Major student may only be awarded the scholarship once. If an Honors in the Major student receives the Honors in the Major Scholarship but does not complete the program, the student will be required to repay this award. Failure to repay the scholarship in this instance will result in a hold on his or her academic record.

The deadline for applying to the Honors in the Major Scholarship for Spring 2017 is February 17, 2017. Please contact your coordinator if you have questions about applying for the scholarship.
