Honors Students Reel in the Big Ones
There’s nothing fishy about URI students reeling in highly competitive scholarships, once considered the purview of the Ivies. In fact, very few big ones get away. This past spring alone, students won two Fulbrights, a Goldwater, a Udall, a Madison, two Metcalfs, and two National Science Foundation research internships.
It’s not a coincidence; it’s a tradition. The story behind the success rests in the Honors Program’s Office of National Scholarships, which opened in 1996 to help select and guide candidates for these major scholarships. Here’s a snapshot of some of the recent winners:
