Why give?

Giving to the Honors College supports an immersive education that attracts talented, ambitious and high- achieving students to Wayne State. As a supporter, you help the next generation of Honors College students to achieve their goals.  

Alumni of the Honors College, Mackenzie Honor Society, Monteith College, or Merit Scholars program may choose to designate gifts to a scholarship that carries forward the legacy of their particular cohort: 

Merit Scholars Alumni Annual Scholarship  

Monteith College Endowed Scholarship  

David Mackenzie Endowed Scholarship 

In addition to scholarships, you can direct support to undergraduate research funds or study abroad programs. You also can support events and programming that make up the Honors College's unique educational model, like service-learning projects and experiential field trips. Or you can direct support to areas where funding is needed most. 

"Receiving scholarships makes me feel proud of my hard work and motivates me to continue to achieve academic excellence." – Justine Valka, Honors College student
