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 Scholars Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE). 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. SURE students participate in several workshops a semester and conduct research on campus led by SURE faculty mentors. Workshops are open to ALL William & Mary students. WMSURE parents are informed through the WMSURE Parent newsletter. William & Mary Scholars also have the opportunity to attend various cultural and social events.
