Applying to the Hertog Scholars Program

Macaulay first year and sophomore students are eligible to register for the program. Students admitted to the program receive all reading material free, thanks to a generous grant.

Discuss the Hertog program with your advisor to understand how the program fits into your academic plan.

Classes are scheduled on Fridays at Macaulay Honors College, to allow scheduling flexibility. Students receive free lunch and refreshments during a break between morning and afternoon courses.


To Apply

Prepare a 1-2 page letter detailing what you hope to get from–and offer to–the program. Please explain how the Hertog Scholars Program fits in to your planned course of study and what insights you believe your area of concentration might offer to your colleagues in the program.

Applicants should also attach a brief writing sample.

Please send these materials to Prof. Darren Staloff.
