Congratulations! Kotzen Scholarships are now available at Simmons University.
Both local and international students are eligible for the Kotzen Scholarship grant from Simmons University. Undergraduate students are eligible to apply for this scholarship. Besides tuition, mandatory fees, and living expenses, the scholarship covers all other expenses as well.
Through rigorous curricular and experiential programming, the Simmons Honors Program develops 21st-century thinkers.
As part of the Honors Program, motivated students are guided through complex intellectual problems and tasks, enhancing the undergraduate experience. Students in Honors should explore other departments and programs to enhance their knowledge of their major discipline.
A small seminar setting and a team-taught course format provide an enhanced curriculum for Honors students. The community includes professors who are also scholars, who bring their own research and community engagement into the classroom, challenging Honors students to push themselves beyond their limits.
