The Circle of Scholars program exists to support both our past and present scholarship recipients through involving their experiences with the current work of the College Fund and providing a space to share successes and resources alongside professional and networking opportunities.
Unlike the dictionary definition that categorizes alumni as a group of graduates from a specific school, our community is much more diverse. To us, an alumnus or alumna is defined as any scholar who has received a College Fund scholarship (from the TCU or Full Circle programs) at any point during their college career and is no longer receiving a scholarship. This does not mean that you have to be a degree-holding professional to be an active member of our Circle of Scholars program and it does not mean that you are ineligible to apply again if you decide to return to school (undergraduate or graduate level).
Our program, like our students, is unique and ever-evolving. We currently offer web-based application tips, additional scholarship resources, newsletters for current scholars and alumni, and host a number of alumni and current scholar meet-and-greet events across the country.
As College Fund alumni are role models for current and future students, your story holds the power to inspire the next generation of leaders in your community. If you are an alumnus who would like to share your success story, please contact us.
Wherever you are in life, we hope this program will provide support and encouragement to help you achieve your goals. Please contact us with ideas or input as the program continues to develop.
