/ Phelps Scholars Program


Go beyond Hope with activities designed to broaden your perspective.

Semimonthly Meetings

The entire Phelps Scholars cohort meets once or twice each month to discuss a variety of topics such as preparing to register, achieving college success, maintaining personal wellbeing, studying abroad, and marketing the Phelps Scholars experience. They also have the opportunity to network with upperclassmen, build relationships with faculty and staff, and may attend other diversity-related events on campus.

Day Trips

Phelps Scholars travel on day trips to a variety of destinations, including:

Trips are offered three to four times each semester. Students are required to attend one trip of their choice during the fall and spring semesters; all others are optional but encouraged as schedules permit. Trip costs are fully covered by the Phelps Scholars Program.

Our field trips served as a real-world experience for learning about other cultures.”
