Since 2010, the scholars of Honors Northeast have won 58 national awards, including eleven exclusive Jack-Kent-Cooke-foundation, full-ride $150,000 transfers.  Honors Northeast scholarships also have helped make the costs of matriculation at NTCC negligible, helping students to focus on academic and scholarly success.  Because of privately financed scholarships for honors students at NTCC, such as the Texas Heritage National Bank Scholarship, the James and Elizabeth Whatley Scholarship, and the Gladys Winkle Scholarship, and others, many scholars of the honors program truly earn as they learn.

Top high school seniors, exemplary homeschool students, and ‘A’ students still lacking an extensive curricular buildup at NTCC are especially encouraged to apply.  The Honors Committee of Northeast Texas Community College determines the scholarship levels of the applicants, and who is admitted.

The program has a unique culture of accolades and scholarship. Its yearly feature-length film series, often featuring personalities from the history of Northeast Texas, have won five State of Texas Caldwell Awards, besting university-group entries.  Twenty-nine NTCC scholars have published essays in state or regional journals, compiled while in their freshman year at NTCC since 2010. The program’s alumni, detailed biannually in the newsletter, Alacrity, include physicians, actuaries, engineers, scientists, corporate officers, teachers, nurses, an architect, and a college professor.
