The Honors Program has funds available to help Honors students finance events such as conferences, retreats, study away trips and national/foreign exchange programs.
Any and all award money issued will be deposited into your student account after the trip is completed. Study Away scholarships will be awarded as soon as the Study Away Office confirms your reservation. Please be advised that if you owe any balance on tuition, housing, parking fees, etc., the awarded scholarship money will be used to pay your account balance first. Any remaining money will then be issued to you at the time of FSU disbursement. Receiving an Honors scholarship for travel could affect any financial aid or work study. Please make sure you check on this before the money is put into your account.
There are no guarantees that scholarships will be available, for we are dependent on an ever-changing budget. Scholarships awarded are to be used for the designated purpose only and must be returned in the event of a cancellation of the trip either by the University or by the student.
Please be advised that we cannot issue any money to you directly. Any award money will be deposited into your student account.
For study away trips, we typically award anywhere from $300 to $600. For conferences or alternative spring break trips that are in the U.S., we typically award anywhere from $100 to $200.
Students must be in good standing in Honors as well as Ferris in order to apply for this scholarship, and must continue to be in good standings and not be on Honors probation, before the funds are deposited into your student account.
