Each Charpie Scholar uses their own unique talents to “make a difference to Carnegie Mellon, the nation and the world.”
Our scholars strive for strong academic achievement, the hallmark of every Charpie Scholar.
Our scholars are leaders among their peers, and are given the opportunity to explore their personal leadership style based on their specific strengths.
Our scholars work hard to make a difference in the lives of others and have developed the combination of knowledge, skills, values and motivation to make that difference in their campus communities.
Charpie Alumni remain involved with the program even after graduation, and frequently act as mentors to current scholars.
The Charpie Scholars meet regularly as a group to dialogue special topics, and they also attend an annual fall retreat for personal and leadership development. Additionally, each scholar receives special leadership, professional, and travel opportunities, with the aim of ensuring the cultivation of a Carnegie Mellon experience uniquely tailored to their talents and ambitions.
The Advisory Board works collaboratively with the Scholars and their faculty liaison to support them during and after their CMU experience.
