Edmund J. James Scholars program
The James Scholar Honors Program is a Universitywide honors program founded to recognize and encourage the talents of academically outstanding undergraduate students within each college. The program is named for the fourth president of the University of Illinois, Edmund J. James, who believed that scholarship and research are fundamental to human progress. In the years of his presidency, from 1904-1920, he procured top scholars, developed graduate programs, and encouraged a sense of community among faculty and students. His many achievements helped to transform the University of Illinois into a university with an international reputation. Students in the College of Media are encouraged to investigative and work toward becoming James Scholars. Please see the form and rules, below, and speak to your adviser if you have questions.
