Honors Programs

<p>Penn has honors programs? Does anyone have a link? Are the honors only for the College or for engineering as well? What are they like? What’s different about them?</p>

<p>Aren't they open to everyone? Like BFS - at least the seminars...</p>

<p>Nevermind I have no clue what I'm talking about. I'm just pretending.</p>

<p>The seminars are meant for BFS, but I think anyone can take them as long as they have the consent of the faculty advisor.</p>

<p>This is the link that has the Benjamin Franklin Scholar (BFS) and other research/scholarly opportunities that people mentioned: <a href="http://www.upenn.edu/curf/%5B/url%5D"&gt;http://www.upenn.edu/curf/&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>Joseph Wharton Scholar (JWS) is another honors program for Wharton students

<p>Nursing Undergraduate Honors Program (NUHP), which I'm in, is the newest honor program set up is for Nursing Students. No website is up at the moment </p>

<p>Vagelos Program for anyone interested in molecular bio. Its the most competitive one in terms of difficulty <a href="http://www.sas.upenn.edu/biochem/vspmls.html%5B/url%5D"&gt;http://www.sas.upenn.edu/biochem/vspmls.html&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p>
