Connecting With Other Scholars

The Renaissance Scholars Program offers several events throughout the year to engage and interact with our scholars.

We host an annual fall and spring brunch where current scholars and alumni come together to enjoy time as a program, as well as interacting with out Co-trustees and staff. Scholars are also invited to University sponsored events that the Foundation attends.

We love getting to see our scholars and having them all together to hear about the amazing things going on in their lives. Current scholars can look forward to these events and foundation staff will reach out via email when events are occurring.

The Renaissance Scholars Program hosts several Facebook pages for our current scholars and alumni.

For current scholars, please visit our Facebook page and request access to join.
