Hillis Scholars Program FAQs
Current Sophomores and Juniors (*by class year, not credit hour) are welcome to apply to the Hillis Scholars program. Freshmen are not eligible to apply. Applicants must also have a Pre-Medical designation and plan to attend medical school in their future.
The Hillis Scholars program hosts speaker events, panels with local physicians, end-of-the-semester banquets in both the spring and fall, an annual pinning ceremony for newly inducted scholars, and weekly family dinners with Dr. Sparky Matthews (optional).
