Giving to Honors


The University Honors Program promotes an enriched academic environment for students of high ability, regardless of major, who are interested in taking advantage of educational and intellectual opportunities and challenges. These include the pursuit of a broad liberal education, the ability to individualize the student’s program of study, access to graduate-level courses, and the opportunity to be involved in hands-on research.

The Honors Program is a powerful tool for bringing some of the brightest and most motivated students from around the nation to Iowa State. Honors students improve the academic rigor across the university, benefitting each and every student on campus.

Private support is essential to the program’s success. Examples of philanthropy in action in the Honors Program include:

  • Annual gifts of all sizes
  • Several privately supported scholarship accounts
  • Martin C. Jischke Honors Building

Ongoing support is crucial to advancing the mission of the Iowa State Honors Program and benefits the program’s students, faculty and staff. Learn more about our designated funds and the many ways financial gifts enhance the Honors experience: Your gift in action.
