Support today’s students by making a scholarship gift. From Mary Swartz Rose and Lawrence Cremin to George Bond and Joan Gussow, the legacy of many of TC's greatest teacher-scholars is carried on through TC's tribute scholarships.
In the words of TC faculty member and fellow first-gen student Dr. Carmen Martínez-Roldán, first-generation college students inspire us “to keep reimagining new ways to honor a diversity of voices and experiences.”
Scholarship support has enabled students across TC programs in Education, Psychology, & Health to pursue their passions and focus on their respective areas of study. Learn how they're making an impact.
