What an Honor(s)

Contribute to the What an Honor(s) fundraising campaign!



A student-led initiative, What an Honor(s), is a campaign focused on building a community amongst the alumni of the Honors & Scholars Programs, alumni of the programs’ predecessors, and current honors students. This campaign aims to engage current students and alumni to make a difference by contributing to the Honors and Scholars Programs.


Alumni engagement allows honors students at the University of Tennessee to benefit from the experiences and generosity of some of UT’s brightest minds. By giving to the Honors and Scholars Programs you provide hundreds of students the opportunity to take advantage of an honors education. Students in our programs strive to supplement their education by studying abroad, completing undergraduate research, pursuing internships, and serving the community. By contributing to Honors & Scholars, you make these experiences possible. Click below to read how a grant has impacted a few of our students and dare to imagine what could happen with your support.

Participate in What an Honor(s) by donating to the Honors Enrichment Fund, and join us in making the University of Tennessee a better place! Whether you can give $10, $100, or $1000 we want all alumni and students to be able to participate in giving. If you want to go a step further and be solely responsible for the empowerment of a student, we think that’s great! a gift of $750 would completely fund the average grant awarded to our students. We hope you’ll donate today.
