Invitations for fall 2022

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 2022) are typically released December through March.

Please note that the Scholars Program is very small, and only 110-120 of the 40,000 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 due to the small size of the Program, even some of the best students may not get invited. 

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

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!

Please note that the realities of living in a pandemic have necessitated that we rethink our in-person programming, but we are eager to return to our normal programming once a vaccine is widely available to students and faculty. While the photos and the narratives presented herein are typically from a period in time that predates Covid-19, we have decided to leave them up as accurate representation of the kinds of programming offered during "normal" times.
