New scholarship recipients participate in scholars-only seminars during their first two semesters at UNI. Seminars are designed to challenge first-year scholars academically while also giving them an unique opportunity to establish themselves as a community of learners.
The two credit seminars count toward the honors designation and are applied as electives toward university graduation requirements.
First-Year Seminar Topics
Dr. Jeffrey Shraffenberger, Department of Languages & Literatures
Language Development, Brain & Society
Dr. Ken Bleile, Department of Communication Sciences & Disorders
