Harrison Scholarship

Does anyone know when they announce the Harrison recipients? And if you don't receive one do you find out whether you are accepted to Honors and/or are just plan accepted?
Does everyone who applied receive some kind of notification one way or another?

Thanks for any insights!

    My son applied for honors/Harrison, but we haven't heard anything either. I think he may have gotten a notice when he sent it in online saying they received it, but nothing else. According to the website, notices will be mailed on the 22nd. I'm not sure if that is just acceptances or both acceptances and rejections from honors.

    You should hear about Honors and Harrison acceptances/rejections at the same time.

    I received an email this morning with my notification that I am a Harrison Scholar and that a package will be sent to my house today. Good luck to you all!

    TehSummit, when do you apply? I assume that you had previously received your Miami acceptance, correct?
  • suzy100suzy100 Registered User Posts: 4,563 Senior Member
    And congratulations!
  • TehSummitTehSummit Registered User Posts: 19 New Member
    Thanks Suzy! Interestingly, I have not received my MiamiU acceptance letter yet. I applied in the Early Action pool, which isn't scheduled to be released for another month or so. I am eager to await the package coming because I think that they might have made a mistake...the Harrison decisions aren't scheduled for release until late February.

    Congrats! Harrison is a great program!

    I think all Harrison decisions are released in December, and you'll learn the final value of the financial aid package in late February after you submit FAFSA.

    I don't think they made a mistake! My stepson heard today that he was accepted into the Honors Program - did not get the Harrison scholarship, which is not a surprise. (I honestly don't know if he even applied in time for that.) I was happy that he got into the HP though. Not sure if that's where he will end up but it's definitely a great choice to have in the bag. (He hasn't received his acceptance letter either!)

    Son was accepted to the Honors Program...received an email today. Letters go out in the mail today, so i will be a few days until received. He is so pumped about being accepted!

    My d got her email notification today of Harrison Scholarship. Very exciting!

    Son was accepted to Honors today. No Harrison, but that was not a surprise. He loves Miami. He only applied to Ohio State and Miami. Ohio State will have to sweep him off his feet to win him over as at this point he is thinking "love and honor"!
  • suzy100suzy100 Registered User Posts: 4,563 Senior Member
    wildwood, my SS is in the same boat. He also applied to OSU's Honors and Scholars program. He won't hear about that until January or February, correct?

    Congratulations to the scholarship winners - and their parents!

    suzy100, I haven't kept up with all the dates this time...my 3rd child to do this in 4 years...things were a little different with each one. We'll do an "accepted student overnight" at both schools in late winter if he hasn't made a decision before then.

    I have two in Honors at MU now. They both have been very happy and both turned down Honors at OSU. My kids so far just feel more at "home" at Miami. We'll see if it ends up being true for S as well.

    Congratulations to all and Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays! Enjoy the Season!

    I got the Harrison!!! But I don't fully understand what it gives/does...? Can somebody familiar with Miami explain to me what it actually gives?
