Honors Program Scholarships

Honors Program Scholarship

Each year the Honors Program recognizes outstanding students enrolled in the Honors Program at Reading Area Community College and awards scholarships based on their past commitment to the Honors Program. Eligible students must have completed six honors credits, maintain a 3.25 GPA (excluding developmental courses), have a B or higher in all honors courses and fill out an application for consideration.

Samuel and Sonia Briskin Scholarship

Each year the Honors Program will recognize an outstanding new student studying in the Honors Program, based on the recommendation of Honors faculty, to encourage further participation in the Honors Program.

Sonia M. Briskin Scholars Award

Each year the Honors Program recognizes one student at the annual Academic Awards Ceremony. The eligible student must have completed three or more honors courses, achieved a GPA of 3.75 or higher, provided outstanding service to the RACC community and demonstrated outstanding leadership abilities. This student is awarded a cash stipend as well as a custom-designed certificate while being honored at the ceremony.

Applications for these scholarships will be available each year in December to be awarded for the spring semester.

* In addition, many scholarships will give merit to honor students in the selection processes.
