Letter from the Program Director

Have you ever found yourself frustrated when you see the disconnect between the current state of our public discourse and the truth? Have you ever thought that our political affairs could benefit from more great men and women being educated in the rich philosophic, literary, and theological tradition of Western Civilization? Can you see yourself preparing to engage in public life through such an education? If so, you should apply for the Saint Thomas More Program at Belmont Abbey College!  


Interested students with a 3.4 or higher cumulative GPA from High School or a combined Math/EBRW SAT score at or above 1200 may apply.


In order to be granted a Thomas More Scholarship, applicants need to take part in a Scholarship Interview. After submitting your application, please await further instructions from the program director for scheduling an interview.

Thomas More Scholars will enjoy:   

                            

  • The support of excellent faculty associated with the program and the ability to join an extremely talented group of Thomas More Scholars.
  • One seminar course every spring semester examining philosophic, literary, and historical texts which raise the fundamental questions of human life. Thus students will participate in the same type of learning as the program's patron, the great thinker and statesman, St. Thomas More. Such texts will prepare students to think more deeply about the vital issues of political life, and enable them to confront the issues of our age in a serious and thoughtful manner.
  • Social events such as movie nights with discussion, campfires with music and poetry at the director's home, outdoor activities such as hiking and camping, and cultural events in Charlotte.
  • The Thomas More Lecture given every semester by a renowned scholar.
  • Four special freshman seminars during the fall semester of their freshman year introducing them to the themes of the program. 


Thank you,

 

Ian Crowe, PhD.

Director of the Thomas More Scholars
