CTCL Scholarship Application

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 44 small, residential, liberal arts schools that deliver a quality education to thousands of students each year. The non-profit Colleges That Change Lives organization is dedicated to preserving the author’s message, and this scholarship is yet another way to ensure the CTCL experience becomes a reality for even more students, including the recent scholarship recipients.

The 2022 scholarships have been awarded.

High school seniors in the class of 2023 are invited to check back next January for the 2023 application.
