Honors Forum

Student Application Form

The application to become a member of Skidmore’s Honors Forum involves your on-line submission of a personal statement and a faculty recommendation. The student, faculty, and administrative members of the Skidmore Honors Forum Council will carefully review your personal statement, faculty recommendation, and Skidmore transcript. They are looking for students who have a passion for learning and who will use their Honors Forum membership to enrich the community. It is important that you treat your personal statement seriously and write it well. It is also important that you choose a faculty recommender whom you believe can speak first to your specific academic strengths and second to the personal qualities that will make you a contributing member of Skidmore’s Honors Forum.

Honors Forum membership is competitive and is limited to approximately ten percent of the first-year and sophomore classes. Please think carefully about your personal statement. In considering whether to apply, you should look at the Honors Forum website, especially the member's guide and past newsletters, to see whether Honors Forum membership is for you.

For more information on the Honors Forum, contact Professor Flagg Taylor, Director, Honors Council: x. 5244

Please list the contributions you have made to the academic and/or co-curricular life at Skidmore.
