Brown Scholars created the Brown Foundation Freshmen Leadership Organization (“Brown Foundation FLO”) to mentor and support incoming freshmen Brown Scholars. Each freshmen Brown Scholar is paired with either a sophomore or junior Brown Scholar pursuing the same major who serves as their mentor. Additional Brown Foundation FLO support is offered through interview and resume workshops, and speaker series featuring motivational speakers. Past speakers include: (I) the President of A&M, Mark Welsh; (ii) the CEO of the A&M Foundation – Tyson Voelkel; (iii) the Vice Provost for Student Success, Tim Scott; and (iv) the Former Dean of the Mays Business School and Professor of Marketing, Eli Jones. Brown Scholar freshmen are also provided leadership, professional development and tutoring opportunities from upperclassmen. The Brown Foundation FLO strengthens the Brown Scholar network by providing social engagements for Brown Scholars to connect across disciplines and form valuable relationships with current Brown Scholars. A professional directory connects current Brown Scholar to Brown Scholar graduates.
