NCHC Sponsored Programs
National Collegiate Honors Council

The National Collegiate Honors Council sponsors the Partners in the Park, the City as Text and Honors Semesters programs. RMU Patriot Scholars are eligible to apply for these programs and for scholarship money set aside by the NCHC for these programs.


Partners in the Park is a learning experience run by university faculty in cooperation with the U.S. National Park Service. Students travel to a national park and spend one week camping, attending seminars on historical, cultural and scientific aspects of the park and enjoying the recreational features of the park. Past Partners in the Park programs have included Acadia, Fire Island to Ellis Island, Big Thicket, Bryce Canyon, Zion, Grand Canyon-Parashant and Saguaro/Organ Pipe national parks. The NCHC offers student stipends for up to $200 towards travel experiences. These stipends are awarded through a competitive application process.

The City as Text and the longer-term site-specific Honors Semesters are structured learning opportunities that take advantage of the location. Students explore the environment and local culture in small teams through short-term laboratories or longer-term research projects. Past Honors Semesters have been in Washington, D.C., the Grand Canyon, New York City, El Paso, Appalachia, the Maine Coast, Iowa, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Greece, the Czech Republic, Spain, and the Southeast coast of the United States, on topics ranging from local culture to global concerns. Some of the programs provide students with upper-division honors transfer credit that can be applied to their graduation requirements.
