“Welcome to the Blount Scholars Program (formerly Blount Undergraduate Initiative) website. Here you will find a wealth of information about what we consider one of the premier undergraduate experiences any University can offer. Through our six course liberal arts curriculum, we give our students the chance to think about their world in new ways, and explore the opportunities they have for intellectual growth in the College of Arts and Sciences. When students enter our program, they live together and take courses together so that they are able to make new, and life-long, friends in a learning-friendly environment.”

“The Blount program invites you to learn more about us here on this website, and to visit us to see what we’re all about. To arrange a visit please contact us at 205-348-1706.”
