CENTRALIS COMPETITION DETAILS 
 
The Centralis Scholar Program...
 
The Centralis Scholar Program is a comprehensive, immersive academic program featuring high-impact learning opportunities for motivated and passionate high academic ability students who seek to aim higher and achieve more meaningfully.
 
Centralis Scholars enroll in unique special topic Honors courses taught by top CMU faculty in a variety of settings from Mt. Pleasant’s campus, to the Appalachian Trail, to places like Bermuda, Florence, and Beijing.  In addition, Centralis students enroll in global citizenship courses which include study abroad opportunities, cultural diversity courses, and foreign language study.  Centralis Scholars are strongly encouraged to engage in undergraduate research and creative endeavors with CMU faculty as early as their first semester at CMU.  Ultimately, each Centralis Scholar will complete a capstone senior project in their discipline in collaboration with a CMU faculty member with an expectation that the results be published or presented in a professional forum.  Centralis Scholars are encouraged to pursue their passions through meaningful service opportunities and are called to participate actively in the vibrant Honors living/learning community.  There are countless Honors Program academic, cultural, social, and community-based opportunities for Centralis Scholars to become engaged in the life and mind of the university.  
 
If the Honors Program mission and core values align with your own vision, values, and goals,  and if you desire to fully engage in the life and mind of the university, then we invite you to apply to be part of our community, a community of scholars with limitless potential, who aim higher and achieve more meaningfully.
