Already benefiting from a prestigious Gallaudet University diploma, Gallaudet Honors Students leave the university with additional credentials that are attractive for future employers.
During their academic tenure, Gallaudet Honors students are challenged and rewarded with additional scholastic opportunities like the Honors Capstone not available to other students. This exclusive but supportive and welcoming community of students are treated to annual retreats, private study spaces, and 1:1 mentorship opportunities. Merit scholarships are available to Honors Students to augment their financial aid package.
The Honors Capstone gives students the opportunity to produce their first piece of scholarly work while reaching the final step in completing the honors program. Working closely with faculty mentors, students will develop a capstone that meets graduate and professional standards of work. Capstone topics are typically major-related, as well as a topic the student is passionate about.
