Scholarship Programs & Awards
- ALANA Achievement Awards Each year, the Office of Student Engagement and Multicultural Affairs recognizes the outstanding contribution of ALANA students at Ithaca College with a number of awards. We would like to congratulate the following students who were nominated and selected for 2015 ALANA Senior Awards, in recognition of the achievements and work of our graduating class.
- Emerging Scholars Program Join the Emerging Scholars Program and participate in one of Ithaca's finest academic and professional development learning communities.
- Honors Program The Ithaca College Honors Program is highly selective. Applications are only accepted from students who have been invited to apply. Invitations are not based on any single criterion, such as standardized test scores, class rank, or G.P.A. The Ithaca College Office of Admission examines all applications to the college and identifies the most highly qualified applicants. Selected students are then invited to apply to the honors program. One hundred and twenty students are selected to begin honors in the fall semester. Blog / Twitter

This renewable $7,000 award is offered each year to Leadership Scholars who maintain a 2.75 cumulative GPA and participate in all required elements of the Leadership Scholar program. Leadership Scholars are offered an opportunity to enhance their leadership experience in a variety of both required and optional leadership activities while at Ithaca College.
- MLK Scholar Program The MLK Scholar Program is more than a scholarship it’s a program! A dynamic learning community, the MLK Scholar Program develops future leaders and global citizens who are committed to promoting Dr. King’s legacy of social justice and equality in their personal and professional lives. Invitations for participation are awarded to academically talented high school seniors who are U.S. citizens orpermanent residents from ethnic and racial backgrounds that have been historically underrepresented in U.S. higher education; program selection is based on application, references, and on-campus interviews and is renewable each year for those MLK Scholars who maintain a 3.3 cumulative GPA and participate in all required components of the Program.
- Oracle Honor Society The Oracle Honor Society is a historic Ithaca College honor society that recognizes academic excellence. New students who achieved a GPA within the top 10% of students in their academic school after completing two full semesters at Ithaca College are invited to accept membership into the society. During the fall semester, there is a recognition ceremony to honor these students. Oracle members believe that these able first-year students will indeed contribute leadership, loyalty, and service to Ithaca College during their subsequent years here

Through a mixture of academic and service programming, scholars are challenged to take action and give back to their communities, and to use the power of mass communication to make a positive impact on the world.
