Gies Scholar Selection Process

Around 40 incoming freshmen will be selected to become Gies Scholars each year. Along with academic achievement, we’re looking for leadership skills, social diversity, creativity, community service activities, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills.

Candidates are identified as eligible to apply to Gies Business Honors Programs based on their admissions application to the Gies College of Business. If selected, the candidate will complete an additional honors application, which includes essay questions and a video interview.

Note: The only entry point to the Gies Scholar Program is as an incoming freshman.
