The William & Mary Scholars Award is presented each year to a small group of academically distinguished students who have overcome unusual adversity and/or are members of underrepresented groups who would contribute to campus diversity. Many will be the first members of their families to attend college. All applicants are considered for the award, and no separate application is needed. Awards are worth the amount of in-state tuition and fees and are renewable each year as long as the recipient remains in good academic standing.
At the beginning of each academic year, W&M Scholars are invited to participate in the William & Mary Scholars Undergraduate Research Experience (WMSURE). This unique program was developed to provide resources to Scholars to pursue undergraduate research experiences at William & Mary, and to encourage Scholars to continue in their research pursuits at the graduate level. WMSURE students participate in workshops every week during the academic year and several times during the summer. Students have the opportunity to conduct research on campus year round led by WMSURE faculty mentors. All William & Mary Students are invited to attend all WMSURE workshops. Join us on facebook and twitter!
WMSURE students also have the opportunity to attend various cultural and social events.
