The Diplomat Program is a scholarship opportunity for young men and women on both the Big Spring and South West Collegiate Institute for the Deaf (SWCID) campuses. The Diplomats are ambassadors of Howard College and carry out numerous community service and campus-wide duties throughout each semester. They serve as the face of Howard College at community events and activities and are expected to represent themselves, their communities and the college in a professional way. Bi-annually the Diplomats head to the State Capitol to represent Howard College during Big Spring Day in Austin.
The Diplomats are selected by a committee on each campus. Candidates are judged by grade point average, past experience, essay, and interview performance. While serving as a Howard College Diplomat you will learn several skills designed to prepare you for your next step in life whether that be continuing your education or beginning a new career.
If you are interested in becoming a Howard College Diplomat, please complete the scholarship application and contact Student Services at (432) 264-5028.
