Scholars Weekend has several purposes:
During the Scholars Weekend, the Foundation engages Scholars in activities related to academic subjects, current events, the arts, and personal growth through a mix of small-group discussions, activities, and speakers, with the emphasis on activities that allow the Scholars to learn more about and from each other.
The weekend normally takes place the first weekend in August. Invitations and registration will occur in late spring. Please visit the Scholar extranet for more information.
