Invitations for fall 2017

Entry into the Binghamton University Scholars Program is by invitation only and no supplemental application materials are required.  Invitations for Fall 2017 have now begun and will continue until all positions have been filled.  

The Scholars Program is very small, and fewer than 150 of the 32,000 applicants to Binghamton University are enrolled in the program each year.  Our University Office of Admissions makes all decisions regarding invitations to the Scholars Program and with the task of offering admission to so few students, then even some of the best students in the US may not get invited. 

However, Binghamton University offers dozens of opportunities for high achieving students to gain academic recognition and academic challenge.  Binghamton University offers university-wide graduation honors, school/college-wide honors programs, departmental graduation honors and a host of honor societies.

For a complete list of honors opportunities please visit  We also offer opportunities for research at the undergraduate level and for students to work in laboratories, as tutors, and as teaching assistants. 

We wish all applicants to Binghamton University our best wishes as you embark on your higher education journey and sincerely hope that Binghamton University will be your destination this fall.

What is the Binghamton University Scholars Program?

The Binghamton University Scholars Program is a selective, all-University, four-year honors program for students of exceptional merit. The program includes academic expectations, professional and just-for-fun extracurricular activities, community involvement and opportunities for students to showcase their work.

Scholars never stop learning (or having fun).

Eye-opening courses. Fun events. An unforgettable residential life experience. Students in the Scholars Program get to experience college on an entirely different level and enrich their lives in ways they never thought possible. Find out all the exciting things Scholars get to do by reading our magazines/newsletters, browsing through our photos and/or stopping by our social media accounts. See how exciting a Year in the Life of a Scholar really is!
