Ithaca College Honors Program
Started in Fall 1996, the Ithaca College Honors Program provides talented students an opportunity to learn with their peers in both an academic and a social setting.  First-year students who have done particularly well in their first semester may be nominated to the program by a member of the faculty.

Martin Luther King Scholars
The Martin Luther King Jr. Scholar Program is an interdisciplinary learning community that emphasizes citizenship and service in the global community. The program is open to academically talented students from ethnic or racial backgrounds that have been historically underrepresented in American higher education.

Park Scholars
The Park Scholar Program creates a dynamic learning community that develops future communications leaders who engage critically, act globally, and perform ethically. Through a mixture of academic and service programming, scholars are challenged to take action and give back to their communities, and to use the power of mass communication to make a positive impact on the world.

Leadership Scholars
Awarded on an annual basis, the Ithaca College Leadership Scholarship recognizes a demonstrated record of leadership and academic performance. This renewable $7,000 award is offered each year. Leadership Scholars are offered an opportunity to enhance the leadership experience in a variety of both required and optional leadership activities while at Ithaca College.
