CTCL Scholarship Results

Congratulations to the 2019 awardees! From more than 1,000 applications, two students were selected as this year’s CTCL Scholarship winners.

  • Elizabeth Leeser from Lourdes High School (Rochester, MN) will enroll at St. Olaf College this fall.
  • Jeffrey Mutethia from Sunshine Secondary School (Nairobi City, Kenya) will join the Whitman College Class of 2023.

Elizabeth and Jeffrey join ten previous CTCL Scholarship winners who are currently attending various CTCL Member Schools. Well done!

About the Scholarship
To honor the 20th anniversary of the publication of the first edition of Loren Pope’s classic book and the 10th anniversary of the non-profit organization, Colleges That Change Lives has established a scholarship for students who enroll at a CTCL-member college or university. The first awards were given in 2016.

About the Book
Four versions of the book Colleges That Change Lives have been published since 1996, each one offering valuable insight about the college search, as well as profiles of 40 small, residential, liberal arts schools that deliver quality liberal arts educations to thousands of students each year. For more than ten years, Colleges That Change Lives, Inc. (a non-profit, charitable 501(c)(3) organization) has preserved and promoted the belief that the college search should be a student-centered process that allows each student to find his or her best-fit college.

The CTCL Scholarship is one way to help make the CTCL experience a reality for even more students. Share the application with students you know and support future awards by donating today.
