Get Involved


FAR FROM ENDING WITH the conferral of a graduate degree, the Thouron Award is a continuing fellowship committed to improving ties between Great Britain and the United States. The Thouron family’s dedication to this goal is unwavering — but it can only be achieved on the global scale Sir John intended with the participation of the broader family of past Scholars. As Tiger wrote in a letter to Alumni in 2000, “You are the Award, You are the fellowship and the friendship … You are the future.” Together, we can maintain the Award’s distinctively personal, family-oriented character.

Beyond graduate school, Thourons have life experience and valuable connections that we want to share with current Scholars and recent Alumni. The benefits go both ways, linking older, established Thourons to outstanding young minds in a fast-changing world. Update your profile to add your name and field(s) of expertise to our register so others can reach out to you. Contact Rachel Thouron for more information on becoming a mentor.

As Thourons, we have always welcomed current Scholars and fellow Alumni to our homes, met with them when we travel, and hosted events. With more than 700 of us now around the world, there are ever more opportunities for having a good time on behalf of a good cause. And it does not have to be anything formal. Consider the possibilities: Guy Fawkes Day or Halloween, St. George’s Day or Fourth of July, a pint at the local pub or a backyard barbecue. Any date is a good excuse to host a gathering of Thourons.

If you’re living someplace interesting – and you know who are – post a note on this site letting Thourons know you’d welcome them stopping by. If you’re travelling, post an announcement to see if you can meet up with old classmates. Or introduce yourself to Alumni from other years. Contact Rachel Thouron for more information on hosting an event.

Although the Thouron Endowment Fund is very strong, it must support the rising costs of postgraduate tuition and living expenses, as well as the generous stipend that encourages entertainment and travel to deepen British-American understanding. Your contributions to the endowment help ensure that the Thouron Award can continue its unique mission. Contact Rachel Thouron for more information on donating.
