Experience


More than just merit scholarship recipients, Woodruff Scholars are engaged citizens in the classroom, on campus, and further afield. The Emory College Woodruff Scholars Program provides creative opportunities for engagement and growth in unique ways. Based on Emory's current guidelines for health and safety this year, we have adapted the Scholar experience for an online format. Scholars will benefit from a variety of live virtual programming, a virtual Scholar Lounge, and video meetings with Scholar advisors.
