CSUB Helen L. Hawk-Windes Honors Program Scholarship

CSUB has offered special honors classes for its very best students since the fall of 1980. What began as a two-year general education Honors Program was expanded to a four-year program in 1998 when Mrs. Helen Hawk Windes, a local philanthropist, donated one million dollars in support of its activities. Approximately 300 students are currently enrolled in the Hawk Honors Program, which provides classes with CSUB's finest faculty members, registration priority, scholarships, enjoyable social events, a special honors lounge, and other unique educational opportunities available only to members of this distinctive program. Unlike honors courses traditionally offered at the high school level, the honors classes at CSUB are not graded more severely than their non-honors counterparts. These courses do, however, provide a chance for our top students to interact with other extremely bright, high-achieving undergraduates from throughout our service region in classes that are exciting, stimulating, and intellectually challenging.
