Each year, Huntingdon College has the opportunity to nominate students for participation in/application to the Irish American Scholars Program. This program offers accepted students the opportunity to study abroad for either a semester or a year at one of several universities in Northern Ireland.

There are minimum requirements for students who wish to be considered for nomination by Huntingdon College for the Irish American Scholars Program, which include, but are not limited to: cumulative GPA of 3.2, sophomore standing, and financial/behavioral good standing with the College.

If accepted, students register and pay tuition and fees as they normally would at Huntingdon, however, housing, food, travel, books, and other living expenses while studying in Northern Ireland are the responsibility of the student.

More information regarding the Irish American Scholars Program, including application materials, is available through the Staton Center for Learning Enrichment. The deadline for application materials is the last business day of November.

Huntingdon College is able to offer this opportunity through the support of the General Board of Higher Education and Ministry of the United Methodist Church.
