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. Congratulations to the 2017 winners:
- Charlotte Leavengood, Shorecrest Preparatory School, St Petersburg, FL, will attend New College of Florida
- Emilie Mercier, New Technology High School, Napa, CA, will go to Saint Mary’s College of California.
Four versions of the book 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.
