The Honors College

The Honors Fellowship is awarded to students accepted into the Honors College, the foremost academic scholarship program at Belmont Abbey College. Like the Great Books programs at Columbia, Oxford, and Notre Dame, the Honors College inspires students to pursue what Matthew Arnold famously described as “the best which has been thought and said in the world.” Here at the Abbey, students are encouraged to do this through a unique series of courses, lectures, and independent studies, in which they learn to listen to authors, teachers, and each other with what The Rule of St. Benedict calls “the ear of your heart.”

Felix Hintemeyer Catholic Leadership Award

The Hintemeyer program is designed to foster the leadership potential of a select group of Catholic men and women. The program requires exemplary character; serious commitment to the truth and life of Catholicism; exceptionally strong self-motivation, initiative, and creativity; academic diligence and accomplishment; and employment of these qualities and abilities in the service of others. Throughout their four years in the program, Hintemeyer scholars strive to grow together in faith, virtue, and knowledge, and to discern through reflection and practice the nature of authentic Catholic leadership. Central to each participant’s experience will be seminars on a variety of leadership and faith topics, communal prayer and participation in the sacraments, and regular student-generated service and leadership activities on and off campus, culminating junior year in a large-scale project of the student’s own design.
