The Campbell Scholars program is a leadership development and academic and social support program. We provide cultural, academic, social, and financial literacy resources and mentorship to students of color at Alma College. Our mission is to develop pathways that lead to educational success, college persistence, and graduation for all students with an emphasis on students of color. Campbell Scholars participate in a range of activities throughout the year including, weekly lunches and dinners, study group sessions, a fall leadership retreat, cultural excursions, and community service projects. The Campbell Scholars Program intersects with the King-Chavez-Parks (KCP) Mentor Program.
Students enrolled in the program are designated “Campbell Scholars” in honor of Alma College graduate and trustee David Campbell, the longtime president of the McGregor Fund who died July 7, 2013, after a battle with cancer. We honor the dream and legacy of David Campbell with this program. His vision for increasing access to Alma College lives on through these students and future students. Apply today!
