students may apply for a McConnell Honors Scholarship. These
scholarships carry a $1000 annual stipend, and will be awarded for a
second year if the student successfully completes his/her freshman
courses. McConnell Scholarship recipients are normally expected to
complete at least 9 units of honors - designated classes per academic
year, while maintaining a grade point average of 3.25 or better. These
scholarships depend upon the availability of funds.
There are two honor societies at Merced College - Phi Theta Kappa and
Alpha Gamma Sigma. Students who are eligible for the Honors Program may
also be eligible for membership in these societies. Please consult the
college catalog for eligibility requirements. Information may also be
