Honors

You’re smart. We know that. But we also know that for you, being smart is not enough. You’re curious, restless and hungry for a challenge. That’s why we provide exceptional students with rigorous yet rewarding opportunities for honors study. Plus, if you are accepted to the Baldwin Honors or Civic Scholars program, you’ll be rewarded with generous merit scholarships.

Civic Scholars: $2,500 Annual Scholarship

Written in stone high on Drew’s gothic gateway are the words, “Freely Ye Have Received, Freely Give.” Drew’s Civic Scholars program rewards applicants showing extraordinary commitment to the community with a four-year scholarship and inclusion in special seminars and community-based classes.

Specialized Honors

If receiving a diploma with the words “graduated with honors” on it sounds sweet, then keep your GPA high and you’ll receive an invitation your junior year to write and present a senior thesis. Do that well, and this distinction is yours.

Phi Beta Kappa, Gamma of New Jersey

In 1980, Drew became the third institution in New Jersey to be granted a chapter of Phi Beta Kappa. The chapter by-laws specify that members are elected “on the basis of broad cultural interests, scholarly achievement, and good character.”
