Park Alumni

With over 1,000 Park alumni around the world, the Park Scholarships network is a thriving resource for current students and alumni alike. Park alumni remain engaged with the program long after they leave campus by hosting networking events, supporting the program financially, and mentoring Park Scholars. Committed to enhancing the program, Park alumni recruit and select new Park Scholars, serve on advisory committees, and manage the Park Alumni Society
