Your gift to the Honors College will make a lasting difference in the lives of our students.  You may be interested in a naming opportunity to commemorate your gift or the collective gift of your family. A gift may also be made in honor of or in memory of someone as a lasting tribute.

SCHOLARSHIPS

Most of our scholarships bear the names of their donors. Your significant donation can, too.

PROGRAMS

  • The Edge Lab: provides an innovation maker space for students, with access to emerging prototyping, design, and collaborative technologies and software The lab is continually in need of upgraded equipment and software as technology changes.
  • The Pre-Med Program: Over 40% of Honors students are pre-med. We offer 7 interdisciplinary seminars related to healthcare, including “Bioethics,” “The History of Medicine Through Art,” and “Developing Human-Centric Skills for Healthcare.” We also provide an Early Assurance pipeline program into FIU’s med school, a one-month summer trip to South Africa, focused on epidemiology; opportunities to work alongside medical students; and an active student organization that takes medical mission trips to the DR.
  • The Career Center: brings together employers and students to fill jobs and internships. It also provides interview and resume prep. Every student who wants an internship gets one. Helping each student individually, as we do, requires multiple dedicated staffers.
  • ARCH, Advanced Research and Creativity in Honors: mounts the annual Conference of Undergraduate Research at FIU (CURFIU), places students with faculty mentors, enables students to present their findings at conferences, and helps keep top young researchers at FIU for grad degrees.
  • Study abroad: in Honors has, over time, taken our students to Spain, the Peruvian Amazon, Italy, Costa Rica, France, Vietnam and Cambodia, South Africa, and now Japan. Students who have studied abroad have found it to be the most meaningful experience of their college careers. Sadly, only a small percentage can afford to go unless we can help them with scholarships.
  • HEARTS, Honors Education in the Arts: takes students to plays and dance performances, to art galleries and exhibits, to concerts and operas. It also takes them on an unforgettable week-long arts-focused trip to New York City—if they can pay their way. We could help with a scholarship fund.
  • A&V Art Exhibition: Now in its 11th year, this exhibition is the product of a course on art as social dialogue. The class also affords students the opportunity to develop real-world talents that will transfer directly to the global workplace
