Rose Hill Honors Opportunities

Honors students have access to all of the resources Fordham University and Fordham College at Rose Hill offer as well as some unique opportunities created just for them.

Honors Grants and Fellowships

Honors Ambassadorial Grants
Ambassadorial Grants provide financial support to students who are presenting academic research, engaging in creative projects, or participating in social justice activities in public venues outside of Fordham University. These students act as ambassadors for both the Honors Program and for Fordham College at Rose Hill as they pursue their personal interests and goals.

Honors Summer Internship Fellowships
Summer Internship Fellowships provide funding for select Honors students to take summer internships at nonprofit organizations that are unable to offer compensation for summer interns. By offering paid internships, these Honors fellowships encourage students to take on responsibilities in organizations that serve the common good.

Check out our blog posts by the students who received Summer Internship Fellowships for the summer of 2017:

Honors Alumni Mentorship Network

Inaugurated in 2017, the Honors Alumni Mentorship Network provides an opportunity for alumni to share their experiences with current Honors students through emails and informational interviews. Current students are matched with alumni who have similar or relevant experience, and they are encouraged to be in contact with their alumni mentor at least once a semester.

Creating connections with Honors alumni not only provides students with insights into professional and career development but also strengthens our vibrant Honors community.

Honors Professional Development Series

The Honors Program offers various opportunities for students to plan for their professional futures. These include the Honors-only Professional Development Series, created in partnership with the Office of Career Services, as well as events arranged through our Honors Alumni Mentorship Network.

Past Professional Development Series events have included …

  • interview workshops with the Director of Career Services
  • Honors-only information sessions with the pre-health dean
  • a Young Honors Alumni Panel
