In order to demonstrate philanthropic leadership and fulfill the group’s mission of creating an alumni legacy at Chapman, members’ annual gifts will support Chapman50 Scholars from the college(s) of their choosing.

- Maintain a GPA of 3.3 or above
- Be a junior or senior student upon receipt of award
- Demonstrate leadership through honors/awards or participation in community, sports, or student clubs and organizations.
Members will have the opportunity to meet and mentor Chapman50 Scholars at various functions throughout the year, including Student Mentorship Dinners and an annual Fall Chapman50 Scholars awards reception. Chapman50 Scholars will be considered first for speaking opportunities at member events. Upon graduation, Scholars will be considered for Chapman50 membership, continuing the legacy of alumni leadership.
