Honors Endowments

ISU students

Hill Honors Program Endowment

In 2009 an endowment for the University Honors Program was created to further support student research and scholarships, and additional Honors programming, thus supporting the fundamental goals of the Honors Program.

This endowment was originally created through individual donations yet has been expanded significantly each year through the UHP’s primary annual fundraiser known as “An Opportuni-Tea.” Funds raised through “An Opportuni-Tea” provide additional “opportunities” for ISU's bright and high-achieving Honors students.


Heithoff Scholarship Endowment

In 2019 the Heithoff family generously endowed an annual scholarship to support Honors students. The first Heithoff Scholarship was awarded during the 2020 "An Opportuni-Tea."

The Heithoff Scholarship is designed to help an energetic, thoughtful, caring, and hard-working Honors student who is striving to earn their college degree.  It is to assist somebody who understands what it means to work, somebody who knows how important a college degree is, and a person who (somehow) still finds a little time to give back to their community or their college through volunteering or mentoring.

Recipients must 1) be a continuing, full-time ISU student, 2) have a part-time job, 3) not already receive >75% of tuition/room/board through scholarships, 4) be an active member of UHP, and 5) have a GPA between 2.90 and 3.90.
