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 2023:

Entry into the Binghamton University Scholars Program is by invitation only and no supplemental application materials are required.  Invitations for the next class of Scholars (those starting in 2023) have been released.

Please note that the Scholars Program is very small, and typically 110-120 of the 48,000 applicants to Binghamton University are enrolled in the program each year.

In Fall of 2022 the Mapping the Soundscape Scholars class began creating a sound archive, recording hours of material every week within Binghamton University's 182 acre nature preserve.
