The goal of the Ford Teaching Fellows Program is to attract qualified students into college teaching by encouraging the development of a close working relationship between a full-time faculty member and a promising undergraduate student. Program activities are designed to engage Ford Teaching Fellows in substantive teaching responsibilities in the college classroom and to support legitimate scholarly inquiry and/or research collaborations in an area of interest common to both the Fellow and the Mentor.

The Honors Program at Millsaps College offers students the opportunity to pursue original work under the mentorship of a faculty advisor. It integrates past coursework with rigorous independent inquiry which leads to more advanced scholarship.The Millsaps Honors Program affords excellent preparation for students planning to continue graduate study or corporate research. Of equal or greater importance, however, is the personal satisfaction and academic maturity derived from the intellectually challenging journey. Students successfully completing the Honors Program will be recognized at graduation with an Honors hood, and the designation of Honors is included on the student's official transcript.
