HOW TO APPLY TO THE FIRST YEAR HONORS EXPERIENCE!
Any student who has been accepted to Mines is eligible to apply to the First Year Honors Experience. When we evaluate applications, we look for the following:
- Academic Excellence
- Intellectual Curiosity
- Leadership Potential
- Community Engagement
- Diversity of Experiences and Perspectives
- Respect for Others
- Effective Communication Skills
Alongside all of these, we look for student leaders who will give to the community and who will thrive in the program.
You can apply to the First Year Honors Experience beginning December 1. We will commence review of applications January 18 and will continue to accept them on a rolling basis until all positions are filled. Early applicants will have an advantage in the process, but all applications received before March 20 will be considered. You’ll be notified about your status in the program by the end of April. We hope you’ll consider getting involved in Honors@Mines!
