Chancellor's Scholars Program
Texas Christian University's Chancellor's Scholars program, a four-year academic scholarship program, is jointly managed by the Office of the Chancellor, the Office of Admission, the Office of Scholarships and Student Financial Aid, the John V. Roach Honors College, and Student Development Services. Chancellor's Scholars are selected as entering freshmen and awarded full-tuition scholarships. This process is highly competitive and includes an interview weekend on campus.
The Chancellor's Scholars Program has provided full four-year academic scholarships to more than 500 students during its history. Currently, the University funds 224 Chancellor’s Scholarships. During the 2016-17 academic year, we have several returning Scholars and 54 first-year Scholars.
In addition to receiving substantial financial support, Chancellor's Scholars also experience opportunities to interact with the Chancellor including a retreat and year-end luncheon, social activities, a dining etiquette and interview skills dinner, participate in an international experience and special recognition at Commencement for graduating students. A Chancellor’s Scholars directory is published each year and distributed to Scholars' parents and family and members of TCU’s Board of Trustees. Programming and support for the Chancellor's Scholars are provided through the Office of the Chancellor.
