The International Scholar Laureate Program is proud to be partnered with three esteemed honor societies for college and university students: Golden Key International Honour Society, the National Society of Collegiate Scholars, and Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society.
Since its founding in 1918, Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society has provided recognition and opportunities to more than 3 million members in nearly 1,300 chapters on college campuses in nine nations. Members have access to over $90 million in scholarship opportunities through Phi Theta Kappa and its partner organizations, including $37 million in transfer scholarships exclusively for Society members to nearly 750 senior college partners. Other benefits of membership include automatic enrollment in CollegeFish.org, a free transfer planning program, and Competitive Edge, a professional development plan to teach job skills.
The International Scholar Laureate Program (ISLP) has partnered with nationally ranked George Mason University to offer college credit to any student who takes part in one of our delegations. U.S. News & World Report named George Mason University one of the best national universities in 2013 and recently ranked it among the top “Up-and-Coming” national universities.
George Mason University sets the highest standards for education, and we are proud to offer our Scholar Laureates the opportunity to earn college credit while exploring their career field through the lens of another culture.
Students attending ISLP may receive two (2) college credits*, at the cost of US$200.
If you are interested in using your financial aid to cover the cost of the credit(s), please take a copy of the estimated cost-of-attendance for ISLP to your financial aid counselor. You and your counselor will review your financial aid package together with this additional information.
For further information on receiving college credit for attending the Program, please contact the Office of Admissions.
*All credits are non-degree and will be issued by George Mason University on a pass/fail basis. The actual transfer of this credit is dependent upon the policy and discretion of the college attended. We encourage scholars to consult with their home institutions to ensure the credit will be accepted before purchasing the credit. Students will have access to official George Mason University transcripts upon successful completion of the Program. Transcripts can be sent to other universities upon written request of the student to George Mason University.
