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.

Invitations for fall 2024:

Entry into the Binghamton University Scholars Program is by invitation only and no supplemental application materials are required.  All Binghamton University applicants are screened for admission.  Invitations to the Scholars Program are typically released February through April.  

Please note that the Scholars Program is very small, and only 110-130 of the 50,000+ applicants to Binghamton University are enrolled in the program each year.
