The Office of the Vice Provost for Academic Affairs offers undergraduate students several opportunities to recognize and advance their academic achievements and pursuits. We provide internal programs like the First-Year Honors Seminar and SEARCH, as well as services for external programs like the Lilly Graduate Fellows Program in Humanities & the Arts and other nationally competitive scholarships and fellowships. See below for more information on how you may benefit from these opportunities.
First-Year Honors Seminar
The First-Year Honors Seminar is comprised of about 50 new academic scholarship winners on campus including the eight 75% tuition (the HC Morrison scholarship) and four 100% tuition (the Wesley Hughes scholarship). These 50 winners are invited to be part of a no-credit, no-homework, discussion forum, a time when these special students from many different disciplines will have the chance to get to know each other and to know the program faculty at the elegant Windsor Manor and discuss issues that pertain to them.
SEARCH Symposium is the annual academic event and competition ($600 cash prize) showcasing outstanding student work at Asbury University. In addition to the student showcase, we invite internationally known guests to come for keynote discussions during the event, which are open to the public.
