Opportunities for Support

There are many ways you can help support the scholars of the Southern Miss Honors College.

Contribute to the Honors College:

It is an exciting time at the Southern Miss Honors College and a wonderful time for you to consider making a monetary contribution. We use donations to support our active-learning classes, to help pay for guest lecturers, and to support students in research projects and travel awards. You may send donations to the USM Foundation, 118 College Drive #10026 Hattiesburg, MS 39406. Note on the check that your donation is intended for Honors College Fund 0220. If you're interested in supporting a specific scholarship fund, contact Dean Dave Davies at 601-266-4533.

Be a mentor:

Many Honors students, especially those nearing graduation or entering graduate programs, seek career mentors. If you are an Honors College alumni or a friend of the Honors College who would be interested in being a career mentor or resource to our students, please consider volunteering to serve as a Honors College career mentor. Additionally, when seeking employees or interns for your company, please consider Honors College students or graduates.

Join our alumni network:

Stay in touch with the Honors College. Let us know of your successes. Find out what your classmates are doing now. The Honors College will be reinvigorating its efforts to maintain contact with alumni with a number of initiatives, including the formation of a Board of Alumni. Graduates who are interested in helping with these efforts are encouraged to contact the College.
