CTCL Scholarship

The Colleges That Change Lives Scholarship was established in 2016 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.

Since first appearing in 1996, four versions of Colleges That Change Lives have been published, each update offering valuable insights about the college search, as well as profiles of 40 small, residential, liberal arts schools that deliver a quality education to thousands of students each year. The non-profit College That Change Lives organization is dedicated to preserving and promoting the book’s message, and this scholarship is yet another way to ensure that the CTCL experience becomes a reality for even more students.

In 2020, CTCL Scholarships of $1,000/year (renewable for up to four years) were awarded to two students who will be attending CTCL-member college or university. Join us in congratulating them!

  • Katrina Girod, of Kingston, Jamaica, will be attending Lawrence University. She is a graduate of Saint Andrew High School For Girls, also in Kingston.
  • Sofie Green, from Pacifica, CA, graduated from Summit Shasta Public School, Daly City, CA, and will be heading to Hope College.

The CTCL Scholarship application for 2021 will be posted early in the new year.
