About Us

Grad_2010_58.JPGThe Donaghey Scholars Program is the honors program at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. It offers a supportive and nurturing environment which fosters intellectual and personal growth. The Program is unique, both intimate and comprehensive.

Scholars are challenged academically through the comprehensive interdisciplinary core curriculum. The Donaghey Scholars Program curriculum is designed to promote critical thinking, a skill that is valuable in almost any discipline. Whether graduates choose to continue their education or enter the workforce, Scholars are well-prepared for their next endeavor. Donaghey Scholars have gone on to win competitive national awards and gain acceptance into prestigious graduate schools.

In addition to intellectual stimulation and recognition, the Program offers an intimate atmosphere that encourages success. With only 20-25 students accepted yearly, Scholars form a tight-knit community with one another, and also with faculty and staff. Scholars foster life-long connections within this community, while building relationships within their individual major departments. Diverse, motivated, and engaged, Scholars enjoy an intimate rapport with one another.
