The Song Nai Rhee Honors Program provides students with the opportunity to challenge themselves with rigorous academic curiosity across the curriculum. This program makes us more attractive to high achieving students and gives every student the opportunity to deepen their scholarly pursuits.
Endowing the program will provide long-term sustainability needed to recruit and retain talented faculty and students to the Bushnell community. Funds will also be used to create a source of revenue for ongoing program expenses such as guest lectures, faculty development, academic conference fees, and undergraduate research opportunities.
