Many Honors Program students have made significant achievements in academics, service, and leadership, making these students ideal candidates for scholarships and grants. Two scholarships in particular—the Kirby-Jones and Duval Scholarships—are set aside specifically for Honors Program students.
Students who successfully complete the Honors Program receive the Academic Excellence Award at graduation. Along with this recognition, some honors students may be eligible to receive additional awards at graduation, or may choose to participate in other honors opportunities not directly affiliated with the Honors Program, including:
- Campus Awards (including Kirby-Jones and Duval scholarships)
- Departmental Honors Programs (a.k.a. Distinction in the Major)
- International & National Scholarship Opportunities (scholarships requiring campus endorsement)
- UCSB Scholarship & Grant Resources (campus affiliated scholarships)
