School of Health Sciences Honors Program

Application Requirements

Application materials are e-mailed to all eligible students. Application materials include an application form and an autobiographical essay. The essay should include information about your academic and career interests and goals, your interest in gaining research experience, your extracurricular and community activities, and other items as indicated on the application form.  Applications are due in early May.

Admittance into the program is selective and applications will be competitively reviewed for enrollment in the fall semester.

This program is separate from the University Honors College.  If you received an invitation to also be part of the Purdue University Honors College, you can participate in both programs as the focus of the HSCI Undergraduate Honors Program is different than that of the Honors College. Please contact Dr. Aaron Bowman, Director of the School of Health Sciences Undergraduate Honors Program at  if you have any questions
