Scholars United

Community is the key to our Scholar Programs. As members of the organization Scholars United, all Top Scholars gain access to enrichment activities and community-building events with their peers.

The organization Scholars United hosts social, service, and professional development opportunities for the scholar community. These events are entirely planned and led by Top Scholars. The group also organizes the Last Lecture Series and hosts a Relay for Life Team.
