Smittcamp Family Honors College

Since 1911, the University has grown to impact every facet of our region. Established in 1998, the Smittcamp Family Honors College has consistently been recognized as one of the top programs of its kind in the western United States. This highly selective program provides unique learning opportunities for academically accomplished and highly motivated students. Over 90% of scholars come from the four-county areas of Fresno, Tulare, Kings, and Madera. After graduation, the majority of our alumni choose to make the Central Valley their home, not only contributing to the overall economic growth of California but addressing and solving issues specific to our Valley communities.

Smittcamp Family Honors College Alumni Endowment

Your donation will support 200 annual President's Honors Scholarship awards which will cover educational expenses and help ensure that the honors college will continue to attract the best and brightest young minds in the Central Valley and beyond.

Smittcamp Family Honors College Student Success Fund  

The Smittcamp Family Honors College directly impacts social mobility and economic vitality in the Central Valley. Bright young scholars who might otherwise attend universities outside of the area are attracted to the unique opportunities offered by the Honors College. The Smittcamp Family Honors College Student Success Fund provides essential support to address unmet needs of students, including research and travel funding, technological support and other educationally-related expenses.
