About the Program

TRHLP Scholars take honors courses that meet general education requirements in a learning community.  Students who successfully complete all program course requirements will receive a leadership studies minor and will graduate with honors distinction.

In addition, all TRHLP Scholars must meet a number of requirements each semester to demonstrate satisfactory progress.  They must follow general academic policies, maintain honors status and follow a particular course of study to be part of the TRHLP.


All participants in the Theodore Roosevelt Honors Leadership Program must be baccalaureate degree seeking. Incoming freshman must have a 3.5 grade point average or higher in high school and/or ACT score of 26 or higher SAT score of 1770 or higher.  Transfer students may enter the TRHLP as sophomores or juniors; however, a contract must be made with the director to complete all coursework to graduate with the leadership studies minor.  Transfer students must have a college/university GPA of 3.25 or higher.

All freshman accepted into the Theodore Roosevelt Honors Leadership Program will receive a scholarship valued at $3000.00 per academic year .  TRHLP Scholars may receive this scholarship for a maximum of four years, which would be 8 consecutive fall and spring semesters.
