Invitations for fall 2019

Entry into the Binghamton University Scholars Program is by invitation only and no supplemental application materials are required.  Last year the University received close to 40,000 applications making it our most competitive year ever.  Invitations for fall 2019 have begun and will continue until all positions are filled.

Please note that the Scholars Program is very small, and only 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 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 including 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?
