A Community of Scholars

In addition to academic and financial benefits, Cutler Scholars are invited into a community of collaboration from orientation to graduation. They have unique opportunities to connect with staff and faculty and interface with one another.

First-Year Retreat
Returning Cutler Scholars facilitate a first-year retreat for the incoming scholars before Fall semester classes begin. The off-campus retreat allows first-year scholars to get to know their classmates and learn more about the Cutler Scholars Program.
