Alumni are an integral part of the Robertson Scholars community, offering valuable contributions that strengthen the program and create meaningful experiences for scholars. Alumni continue to embody the program’s values of purposeful leadership, intellectual curiosity, strength of character, and a collaborative spirit through their work in the world and are encouraged to share their accomplishments, experiences and resources with the broader community as they grow and develop professionally and personally.
Alumni can stay involved with the Robertson Scholars Program by:

Connecting with scholars
Providing scholars with world-class, transformational experiences is the cornerstone of our program—and that includes providing students with access to the vast and diverse network of change makers in our alumni community. Have an internship opportunity or a job opening? Looking for an opportunity to mentor someone interested in your field? Planning an upcoming trip to Durham or Chapel Hill? Reach out to Stephanie Keller to coordinate.
Reconnecting with alumni
In addition to seeking and making connections through Robertson Connect, alumni lead regular virtual Robertson Hangouts on a range of personal and professional topics that challenge, inspire and build community across geography and career. Subscribe to our alumni newsletter to learn more about leading or joining a Robertson Hangout, and connect with new and familiar faces in the scholar and alumni community.
Participating in the selection process
Finalist weekend is the first and often one of the most defining experiences for scholars throughout their journey with the program. It’s their first interaction with staff, future peers, and alumni, and it gives them a glimpse into the opportunities and impact that the program can have in accelerating individual growth both during and after college. We want you to be a part of that defining moment for a scholar—and to support with the process end to end. Make sure to read the quarterly alumni newsletters for info when the call goes out.
