The Furman Scholars program seeks to honor high school juniors who exhibit strong academic potential, demonstrate leadership potential, and show significant involvement in extracurricular activities and community service. High school guidance counselors nominate current juniors to participate in the program. Effective for students entering Furman in the Fall of 2018, those selected as Furman Scholars are eligible to receive at least $20,000 in scholarships upon acceptance to Furman University.
