Northeastern’s University Scholars Program is among the most intellectually bold and distinguished undergraduate scholarship programs in the country. Drawing from the top 1 to 2 percent of the applicant pool of more than 49,814, the program is dedicated to educating and nurturing the best and brightest young minds in the world. In addition to a full-tuition scholarship, these students have the opportunity to design a tailored program that spans colleges, departments, and global partner institutions.
The University Scholars Program builds upon Northeastern’s core strengths as a university:
- The University’s Honors Program — each University Scholar is also a member of our Honors community with access to all of the Honors resources and advising.
- The expertise of our faculty and our cutting edge research facilities
- World renowned co-ops, experiential learning opportunities where classroom knowledge is brought to bear in the working world and vice versa
- A global perspective, cultivated by bringing students from around the globe to study in Boston and by sending students abroad for immersive international experiences
- An ethical commitment to being of use to others, embodied in our top-ranked service-learning program and Center for Community Service
