Honors Scholar Program

Be part of a community that is challenging and supportive. As an Honors Scholar, you won’t get more coursework, just more interesting coursework. You also will get the chance to participate in domestic and international trips that are open only to Honors students, as well as cultural and community service opportunities in the Dallas-Fort Worth-Denton area.

This program is for first-time-in-college students, transfer students, and a select number of current TWU students.

All New Freshman and Transfer students receive an annual scholarship of $6500 or more.

Current TWU students are awarded an additional $1500 Honors Achievement Scholarship.

  • A composite score of 28 or higher on the ACT or 1300 on the SAT (M+V)
  • Top 5% of your high school class

The Honors Scholar program has been nothing short of a blessing to me throughout my time at TWU. This program not only provided me with many opportunities, but it also provided me with a college family from whom I have received tremendous support and encouragement.
