“My time with the Honors College has been the most self-constructive in my life. I have learned, experienced, traveled, presented my work to experts, won awards, and most importantly - enjoyed the company of a terrific group of individuals.”

 About Us

The University Scholars Program at the College of Staten Island, one of eight CUNY Macaulay programs, is designed to provide an outstanding educational opportunity for academically gifted students. Special features include full financial support and access to exceptional academic and cultural activities.   

The classroom experience begins with small, honors college courses taught by top faculty. Students are mentored by faculty as they progress through their major, and there is a strong emphasis on independent research.

Outside the classroom students are provided with many opportunities to participate in internships and community service related to their fields of study. They receive individualized advisement and attend pre-professional seminars and workshops.

Macaulay Honors College students receive funding for study abroad and a cultural passport which offers them access to the arts of New York City at reduced cost. Students also have the opportunity to attend dinners and workshops with leading figures from the arts, sciences, and business.

College of Staten Island University Scholars have access to the Honors College Lounge and Computer Room. They enjoy intensive advisement and staff support, as well as the camaraderie of a small group setting. This combines to provide the Honors College students with the unique benefits of belonging to an intellectually gifted, cohesive group of students within the larger University settings of CSI, Macaulay, and CUNY.
