CTCL Scholarship Fund

Thousands of students and families have reaped the benefits of a CTCL experience and have been “changed” in ways that were unforeseen but graciously welcomed. To commemorate the 20th anniversary of Colleges That Change Lives and the 10th anniversary of the non-profit CTCL, the Board of Directors established the CTCL Scholarship Fund to make the CTCL experience a reality for even more students.

We invite everyone whose lives have been enriched by their CTCL experience to donate to the CTCL Scholarship Fund. Your donations fund scholarships for outstanding students who enroll in any CTCL member college. Since its establishment in 2016, 19 students have received the CTCL Scholarship.

In 2022, CTCL awarded two $4,000 scholarships. (Each scholarship is paid directly to the individual student’s CTCL institution, $1,000 per year for 4 years.) High school seniors in the class of 2023 be invited to begin their applying for the 2023 scholarship in January.

Thank you for sharing this message with others who you think may be interested in changing more lives with a donation to the CTCL Scholarship Fund.

$4,000 – Full Scholarship
$2,000 – Half Scholarship
$1,000 – One Year of Scholarship
$250 – Friend of CTCL
$100 – Scholarship Supporter
