Welcome to the President’s Scholars alumni page. Please send us information and photos of your latest adventures and achievements so that we can share them with your fellow alumni and with current President’s Scholars, who are following in some mighty footsteps. We can also include the information in the Class Notes section of SMU Magazine, sent free of charge to all alumni twice a year.
SMU is proud of its PS alumni, who number more than 500 since the program's inception in 1982. They have forged exciting paths for other Scholars to follow in law, medicine, the arts, academe, business, technology and other disciplines.
SMU President's Scholars have earned advanced degrees from both SMU and other many prestigious graduate, medical, and law schools, including Harvard, Stanford, Yale, Georgetown, Mayo Graduate School of Medicine, Johns Hopkins, Duke, The Julliard School, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Cal Tech. Scholars have also won Fulbright awards for study in Germany, Mexico City, Ecuador, Singapore and Austria.
Their ranks include a NASA scientist, symphony musicians and professional actors, an award-winning playwright, and a professional ballet dancer. Others have become lawyers, university professors, doctors, teachers, engineers, economists, financial consultants, print journalists, writers, editors, art historians, and successful entrepreneurs.
PS Alum Javier J. Aldape ('92) was honored with the 2005 Emerging Leader Award at the SMU Distinguished Alumni Awards. He is currently a national media editor and executive with Tribune Company. Congratulations to Javier!
