About The Roan

Founded in 1997 to attract the region’s most promising young leaders,
the Roan has been changing lives - and making a significant positive impact
on ETSU, local communities, and the entire region - since the first class of Roan Scholars entered in fall 2000.

Established to attract the region’s most promising young leaders, the Roan Program strives to develop each student’s leadership potential, and inspire them to lives of excellence and impact – in whatever field(s) they choose to pursue, wherever they choose to go (throughout the region, and around the world).

The Roan provides a scholarship that includes not just a significant financial award but, also, a full four-year experience: workshops and seminars, speakers, encouragement and support for internships and study abroad, research, and other individualized opportunities; along with access to a growing network of Roan Alumni, community and regional leaders, and all the other members of the extended ‘Roan Family.’
