The John V. Roach Honors College is a high-impact community where the complexities of knowledge are enthusiastically explored. If we can reach 150 donors we will unlock a special $15,000challenge gift from TCU Alums and Honors Parents Drs. Wendy and Ric Bonnell.

This TCU Gives Day, you have the opportunity to designate your gift to one of six fund opportunities that support our students’ journey of academic excellence.

Unrestricted Support 

One of the most generous gifts you can give is unrestricted support. This is a fund that allows the College to address opportunities as they arise. There is no more important gift than the gift of flexibility. We appreciate your support of the John V. Roach Honors College’s greatest needs.

Teaching Innovation

Throughout our history in Honors, great professors have led the way. This fund will fuel innovations in teaching excellence and provide funds for professors to debut experiential, high-impact pedagogies that require substantial resources. 

Undergraduate Research

Undergraduate research is a pillar of the Honors experience. As high-achieving students work to answer a question or complete a project, they strive to satiate their academic curiosity at a higher level of inquiry. A gift to the Honors Undergraduate Research Fund will help further our ardent support of Honors students’ creative and inquisitive academic pursuits.

Scholarship for Students with Financial Need

For 44 years, Dr. Bob Frye taught English at TCU. In a tribute to his service, friends and family have established the Bob & Alice Frye TCU Honors College Academic Scholarship which helps students in the Honors College with financial need. A gift to the Frye Scholarship is a great way to ensure that an Honors education is available to students regardless of their financial situation. 

The Nature of Giving & Philanthropy

This Honors colloquia offers students an opportunity to act as a Foundation and direct support to not-for-profit organizations. Since its inception in 2011, students have made an impact on the operations of dozens of community organizations as they learn about the importance of philanthropy and ways they can change the world.

Honors Abroad

Honors Abroad are offerings that provide our students with an opportunity to expand their global perspective. Each course is carefully crafted to challenge students’ thinking about the world in which they live. From Australia to Japan, and beyond, our students are taking the world by storm. When the pandemic eases, they will travel again. Help make these life-changing opportunities available to more students.
