Elevating the challenge
Cultivating Research: one-to-one faculty mentoring
Honors College students at Pace engage in the type of advanced research typically reserved for graduate students. Honors College students are encouraged to apply for a $1,000 research stipend to support research under the guidance of a Pace professor. Honors students are also eligible to apply for Pace's $5,000 Eugene M. Lang Student-Faculty Research Fellowship awards. Stipends are presented to undergraduate students annually who spend a year working on a research project alongside a faculty mentor. Results are presented by students and professors at professional conferences, research papers are published, and credit is earned. The Honors research experience at Pace is a building block for advanced study and future scholarship awards for research.
Honors College advisement
In addition to regular faculty advisors, Honors students have specialized advisement. Both campuses have an Honors Director, an Honors Advisor, and a Council of Honors Faculty who are there to assist you in your decisions and to help you to plan your individual path through four years in the Honors College.
Going for the Gold: Fulbrights and other awards
Honors College students are strongly supported to maximize their potential through applying for national scholarships, fellowships, and funded research programs. This list includes the Fulbright Award (the most prestigious scholarship offered by the U.S. Government), the Goldwater Scholarship, James Madison Scholarship, Udall Scholarship, Jeannette K. Watson Scholarship, Gilman International Scholarship and the National Science Foundation's Research Experiences for Undergraduates. Adding further opportunity to achieve, Pace University has honor societies in many disciplines.
