The mission of the Presidential Scholars Program is to provide honors students with an enriched learning environment in the liberal arts.
The program challenges honors students intellectually through rigorous liberal arts courses and shared scholarly extracurricular experiences. Our goal is for our students to be active participants in their own intellectual development. With a diverse student body from majors across the college, the Presidential Scholars Program fosters a cohesive community of scholars who become leaders on campus and in their fields. Our program seeks to take advantage of our location in New York City, using it to enrich our classrooms and expand students’ horizons.

Are you intellectually curious?  Looking for ways to take advantage of New York City as an extended campus?  Eager to network with students from other majors?  Then broaden your horizons with the Presidential Scholars Program, the honors program at FIT.

Open to incoming freshmen and juniors who seek a more challenging college experience, the honors program enhances your studies with: 

  • specially-designed honors liberal arts courses
