The UConn Honors Program allows high-achieving students to enrich their undergraduate education through challenging coursework, smaller classes, faculty advisors, a shared community network, Honors housing, events, education abroad, special programs, and the Honors thesis/project experience.
The Individualized and Interdisciplinary Studies Program (IISP) works with undergraduates who wish to design their own majors or pursue select interdisciplinary minors (including International Studies, European Studies, and Criminal Justice). Individualized majors are based in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences or College of Agriculture, Health, and Natural Resources, and may draw on courses in other schools and colleges.
The Office of National Scholarships & Fellowships (ONS&F) recruits and mentors students to compete for prestigious national and international scholarships, including Rhodes, Marshall, Goldwater and Udall.
The Office of Undergraduate Research (OUR) provides research-related opportunities and information to undergraduate students interested in independent or collaborative research with faculty members and research professionals.
These professional centers offer education and services to all UConn students and alumni interested in medical, dental, or legal careers as they establish and achieve professional school admission and career goals.
Available to students from all of the University’s schools and colleges, the University Scholar Program allows students to design and pursue an in-depth research or creative project and to craft an individualized plan of study that supports their intellectual interests during their final three semesters. No more than 30 students are selected each year. Graduation as a University Scholar recognizes a student’s exceptional engagement in research and/or creative endeavors.
