For the 2020 Honors Institute, we will select Faculty Scholars from among the Society’s chapter advisors, Advisor Emeriti, and alumni. All chapter advisors, advisor emeriti, and alumni are eligible to apply. Chapter advisors wishing to apply must be willing to serve in the advisor role throughout the 2020-2021 academic year.
