Sands Scholars Program

The Sands Scholars Program was established by Bob P. and Sally G. Sands for Howard University students in 2017. The cohort-based, student-centered program, provides advising, support and enrichment for a community of scholars focused on student success, graduation and career development.

Howard University Freshman Scholars (HUFS) 

The Howard University Freshman Scholarship (HUFS) is a merit-based financial aid award, available to incoming freshmen and granted at the time of university admissions. Students are encouraged to work with academic support services in OUS, university academic advisors and the Office of Financial Aid to maintain eligibility for the renewable award. Scholars can access the HUFS Community Blackboard Site as a resource center for information from various offices, including the Office of Financial Aid and the Office of Undergraduate Studies.  SCHOLARSHIP MEMO ON HUFS RENEWALS: FINANCIAL AID INFORMATION SHEET (2020-2021)

Clare Boothe Luce Scholars Program (Women in STEM)

With funding for undergraduate scholarships from the Clare Boothe Luce Program, the Center for Honors and Scholarship Development provides collaborative programming to support women engineering majors in the university’s prestigious Karsh STEM Scholars Program. Programming includes workshops on national competitive fellowships for graduate programs focused on STEM research careers.  

Lomax KIPP Scholarships and Howard KIPP Through College Program 

Through the generous support of Martha and Bruce Karsh, Howard University’s Lomax KIPP Scholarships provide funding to cover the gap between financial aid and the cost of attendance. Lomax KIPP Scholarships are named in honor of Michael L. Lomax, CEO and President of United Negro College Fund (UNCF), who was a longtime distinguished advocate and inspiration for African American students seeking higher education. Two Lomax KIPP Scholarships are awarded each year to incoming freshman to support student success through graduation through the KIPP Through College program, an initiative that provides campus support for all KIPP alumni. Currently, 80 KIPP graduates are enrolled at Howard University.
