Chaminade Scholars

The Chaminade Scholars Program allows Honors students to explore faith and vocation in an interdisciplinary community. Chaminade Scholars engage in a common set of seminar-style courses and retreats designed to deepen the relationships among the cohort. The course sequence helps them to consider their own lives as a calling from God and to develop their skills as Christian leaders.

Fifteen first-year students are selected for the Program, bringing together students of various majors who all desire to grow in their faith and understanding of who they are called to be and what they are called to do.

Membership and Benefits

To Apply

First-year students interested in the Chaminade Scholars Program apply at the end of fall semester. Application information for current students can be found on Porches.

The online application deadline is mid-January.

Please note that REL 103 (or ASI 110 for CORE students) is a prerequisite to the Chaminade Scholar course sequence.

Maintaining Membership

To remain a Chaminade Scholar, cohort members must:

  • Remain an Honors student in good standing
  • Earn 9 Honors credits through completion of the Chaminade Scholars course sequence
  • Attend all required retreats and events unless specifically excused by the appropriate Honors Program or Campus Ministry administrator


Chaminade Scholars are awarded a $2,000 annual scholarship payable at $1,000 over two semesters beginning their sophomore year and renewable annually, provided the student satisfies program requirements. This scholarship will be added to the individual student’s other scholarships and the total cannot exceed the cost of tuition.
