Fellows (Honors) Program

Each year, Concordia College admits only a few outstanding students to the Fellows (Honors) Program. These students achieve high standards while maintaining a heavy course load and delving deeply into subject matter. Concordia Fellows have the opportunity to receive a scholarship of up to full tuition.
