The EC Scholars award is the most prestigious scholarship offered at East Carolina University, and we challenge you to join us in an academic experience that goes beyond the ordinary.
To attract the most intellectually talented students to East Carolina University, the EC Scholars Program was established in 1998. The scholarship offers challenging learning experiences to a highly academically gifted, select group of East Carolina University undergraduates.
The EC Scholars Program provides students with rigorous coursework, research opportunities with faculty members across campus, and a required Study Abroad experience. EC Scholars live and learn in a collegial residence environment, and participate in leadership and community engagement opportunities in eastern North Carolina and beyond.
Early Assurance Programs
The Honors College proudly offers three Early Assurance programs. These programs are directed at prospective students who are interested in graduate programs in medicine, physical therapy, or audiology following the completion of their undergraduate degrees. Students are guaranteed entry into each respective program upon completion of their undergraduate degree provided they satisfy requirements.
