Olivet College will host its fifth annual Global Citizen Honors Program (GCHP) Scholarship Competition Friday, Jan. 15 on campus. A total of 95 high school students will compete for a grand prize full tuition scholarship to Olivet College, as well as a number of additional scholarship awards throughout the day.

Members of the GCHP at Olivet College are provided opportunities to investigate global, interdisciplinary issues by inquiring into the theories and philosophical underpinnings of complex social issues. The program is experiential, requiring members to be involved not only with the problems they are investigating but with each other and the world around them. GCHP is designed for the student who wishes to continue demonstrating creativity and leadership within the framework of individual and social responsibility.

In addition to competing for a full-tuition scholarship, GCHP members are offered a distinct academic experience, including honors seminar, honors option courses, honors sections of Liberal Arts Core courses, world languages and the college’s Oxford Experience.

Students were selected for this year’s competition based on their academic standing. All of the competitors are high achieving, incoming Olivet College freshmen who met specific grade point average and ACT score requirements.

During the event, students will participate in an interview session with faculty and staff members, as well as an essay writing competition. The program also includes information about the GCHP and honors classes at Olivet; a welcome session with Maria Davis, Ph.D., provost and dean, and Matt Wait, J.D., professor and GCHP director; and individualized visits with admissions and financial aid representatives. The scholarship winners will be announced in February.
