LCCC Honors Scholars Program Accepting Applications

published Wednesday, November 3, 2021
Applications are now being accepted for Lehigh Carbon Community College’s fall 2022 Honors Scholars program for prospective students who would like to concentrate more seriously on academics and who are intellectually curious and highly motivated. The Honors Scholars program provides an academic focus that creates a strong foundation for further learning and challenges students to expand their intellectual, cultural and social horizons, and to become lifelong learners. The program is ideal for students who are willing to challenge their views, discuss their ideas and explore diverse perspectives.
 
The Honors Scholars program welcomes a limited number of qualified, full-time, first-year students who plan to graduate from LCCC and transfer to a four-year college or university. Students who have successfully completed AP courses or high school honors courses, achieved a high school GPA of 3.5 or higher, are a member of the National Honor Society, are ranked in the top 10% of their graduating class, or scored a combined 1200 on their SATs are encouraged to apply.
 
Scholars receive a full tuition scholarship, covering tuition and fees after all Federal Pell grants and institutional scholarships are applied. Students must maintain a 3.0 GPA to be eligible for the scholarship each semester.
 
Students have the option of applying to one of two tracks - Liberal Arts or Science, Technology, Engineering, Math (STEM). Students accepted into one of the program tracks complete a minimum of 24 honors credits, which include cohort classes that the group takes together. Other coursework is based on students' majors and transfer schools. Honors courses are selected to ensure that students will graduate on time.
 
In addition, high achieving students who have completed 15-30 credits as dual enrollment students, current LCCC students or students who have transferred in to LCCC from other institutions are encouraged to apply to the Honors College program, which is a one-year scholarship opportunity.
