Each year, Drake University seeks admitted students with curiosity and the passion to explore interdisciplinary topics that require critical reading, thinking and writing to join Drake University’s Honors Program.
Our unique Honors Program has no strict GPA requirements for participation, however a 3.2 cumulative grade point average is one of the requirements for graduating with University Honors. Students who are looking for engaging, discussion-based and writing-intensive courses are welcome to join. Please upload an essay with your online form if you would like to be considered for the John August Book Award and the Honors Mentor Program.
All accepted Drake University students are welcome to declare interest in the Honors Track of the Drake Curriculum at any time — essays for the John August Book Award should be received by March 1, 2018 for consideration.
