About the program

Over their four years at Rose-Hulman, Noblitt Scholars focus their passion and energy to solve national and global challenges.

Each year, through a rigorous and competitive application process, Rose-Hulman selects 55 first-year students representing diverse academic interests and backgrounds to become Noblitt Scholars.

As a Noblitt Scholar, you will receive one-on-one faculty mentoring, special opportunities for world travel, leadership training, and much more. Every Noblitt Scholar will also receive financial assistance, with enhanced scholarships up to full tuition.

Every Noblitt Scholar has an area of interest where they want to make a difference, such as sustainability, infrastructure, cybersecurity, or health care. As a Noblitt Scholar, you’ll work closely with a faculty mentor to deepen your knowledge and understanding of the subject you choose while gaining the skills to make a positive difference on our campus and in our world.

As a Noblitt Scholar, you’ll work hard to maintain a strong GPA, work closely with a faculty mentor, and broaden your understanding of an issue that ignites your passion. You’ll take part in community service projects, campus initiatives and serve as a full-time ambassador of all that’s best about Rose-Hulman.

Noblitt Scholars are chosen before they arrive on campus through a competitive application process. We are looking for students who want to make a positive impact on the world and are willing to put in the effort to achieve their dreams for the entire four-year program. Contact the Office of Admissions to learn more about the program.


We wanted to establish a program that will enable our students to make a positive impact on environmental, infrastructure, health care and other major challenges as soon as possible.
