Giving to the Honors Program

The College of Arts and Sciences Honors Program provides a wide variety of opportunities for academically motivated undergraduate students to connect with exceptional faculty and peers. These opportunities include taking Honors Program courses, graduating with Latin honors through the writing and defense of an honors thesis and the possibility of having their work published in our highly respected Honors Journal. Gifts to these funds help us to maintain and build Honors Program opportunities for CU Boulder undergraduate students and to fund activities that enhance our community of student scholars.
