The Honors Program at the University of Nebraska is a community of talented and committed students who seek an
intense intellectual experience in a major research university setting. Honors students have access to special
honors classes, faculty mentors and unique research opportunities. Additionally, many Honors Students receive
a $500 textbook scholarship and all have the opportunity to live in the historic Neihardt Residence Hall.
