Use your talents to make an immediate impact as you work toward achieving your biggest, boldest goals.

The W.A. Franke Honors College embraces an entrepreneurial learning environment in which Flinn Scholars thrive. This is because it allows them to pursue multiple areas of study that align with their dynamic talents and interests.

Our Flinns are some of the highest-performing and highest-achieving students on campus. As a Flinn Scholar in the Franke Honors College, you will be encouraged to create an academic journey that’s unique to your goals. You may choose to participate in internships, pursue multiple degrees, take advantage of civic engagement opportunities or other activities that elevate your potential.

In addition to all of the VIP benefits associated with a Franke Honors College membership, Flinns say the biggest perks include:


Beginning as a freshman, you can work with nationally recognized professors on important research projects in almost any academic area. Arizona is a premiere research institution and the experiences you have here will benefit you for the rest of your life.


Each Flinn scholar is paired with a faculty mentor. Your mentor will guide you, challenge you and connect you with unbeatable opportunities to grow personally and professionally.


This outing is a great way to bond with your fellow Flinn scholars off campus in a fun setting. It’s sure to be something you will always remember well beyond graduation.
