 Student Honors Council Fund

The Student Honors Council Fund is made up of generous contributions by parents of Westminster College Honors students and monies from other fundraising activities. Parents or other friends of the Honors Program who wish to make tax deductible gifts to the Student Honors Council fund or talk about other development opportunities in Honors should contact the Honors Program Director. Contributors of $200 or more will have their names engraved on the Parents Honor Roll plaque that hangs in Nunemaker Place, home of the Honors program. The Student Honors Council fund supports Honors enrichment activities, especially by enabling student attendance at academic conferences, assisting with senior thesis research costs, and providing stipends to help offset the cost of investigating graduate school.
