Expanding Opportunities

At TCU, we believe a quality education should be accessible to everyone. That’s why we invest in programs like Community Scholars, STEM Scholars and Chancellor’s Scholars, which award millions of dollars in scholarships to under-represented groups and high-achievers each year.

Community Scholars

For a generation, the Community Scholars Program has recruited top candidates from under-resourced public high schools in the Fort Worth-Dallas community and offers more than $6 million in full-ride scholarships—including housing— each year. Community Scholars live on campus and are supported by a mentoring and leadership program. This life-changing scholarship has been a win-win for the students, their families and TCU. Community Scholars have gone on to impressive graduate schools and careers. Read more about the Community Scholars program at TCU Magazine.

Chancellor’s Scholars

Chancellor Boschini with Chancellor's Scholars
Over the last four decades, the TCU’s Chancellor’s Scholarship has rewarded the most accomplished, talented potential Horned Frogs for their remarkable achievements and hard work and has supported and challenged these leaders to be productive citizens and leaders in the community at-large. Chancellor’s Scholars are among some of the best and brightest students on the campus.

The highly competitive Program, which includes multiple rounds of committee review and on-campus interviews, has provided full-tuition academic scholarships to hundreds of students.
