What is Scholars Day?
Scholars Day is an invitation-only event for incoming freshmen. Participants will be considered for our highest scholarship awards. A Scholars Day application will be mailed to all students who have been admitted to FAU and the Honors College by December 15th.
Students selected for Scholars Day will receive an invitation in the mail. In order to be considered for a Scholars Day scholarship, students must attend the entire program, in-person. This program includes a writing exercise, a meeting with the Dean and an interview with two professors. Throughout the day, faculty, staff and students will be available to answer any questions you have about the College and to provide information about areas of study, clubs and organizations, residential life and community activities.
