Our alumni are redefining leadership

Over 300 Rainier Scholars alumni are working or attending graduate school in a variety of fields, bringing diverse perspectives, voices and talent forward, while redefining leadership.


Alumni Council Mission

The Rainier Scholars Alumni Council is a growing body of young professionals committed to mutual support, networking and professional development, social activities and support for the Rainier Scholars community.

Alumni Council Leadership

“We are a community network working to create a better future for ourselves, for our communities and for the world. We continue to uplift one another and to serve our alumni community with a focus on four pillars: Fundraising, Fun-raising, and Friend-raising. We welcome you to take this journey with us.”
