Welcome to the URI Honors Program!
At the University of Rhode Island, Honors isn’t harder; it’s different. The URI Honors Program offers interdisciplinary educational experiences that prepare students for the challenges awaiting them upon graduation. Small class sizes across the disciplines mean individualized learning opportunities with outstanding and passionate faculty who are leaders in their fields.
Outside the classroom, numerous opportunities for research and in-depth study with faculty mentors await ambitious students. The Honors staff enhances the advising undergraduates receive from their major advisors through one-on-one advising and mentoring. The Honors Program is also able to offer housing and early registration for qualifying Honors students. Support for those applying to local, national, and global scholarship and fellowship awards as well as funds to support undergraduate research is available.
URI’s Honors Program houses the Office of National Fellowships and the Pre-Health Professions Advising Program for those undergraduate students interested in pursuing graduate-level health professions. And, after more than fifty years, the Honors Program continues to offer the nationally renowned Honors Colloquium, a free community public lecture series that brings globally recognized scholars, artists, and thinkers to the state-wide community.
