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.
