The Science, Mathematics and Research for Transformation (SMART) Scholarship-for-Service Program is an opportunity for students pursuing  Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics disciplines to receive a full scholarship and guaranteed civilian employment with the Department of Defense upon graduation.  

Scholarship Leads to Success

The University Honors Program is designed for highly motivated individuals who wish to foster their love of learning in challenging environments where they are surrounded by students who share their drive and determination. Honors students are actively involved in campus life -- leading student organizations, conducting research with faculty, mentoring other students, and volunteering in the community. 

Graduates of the program have gone on to enroll in competitive graduate and professional programs, run their own businesses, or hold leadership positions in their companies.
