Graduates of the Academy Scholar program are invited to maintain their connection with the Academy by applying to become an Academy Graduate Scholar. The application to become a Graduate Scholar support the TUSM promotions process. It is hoped that Graduate Scholars will become active participants in the affairs of the Academy and progress to election as Fellows of the Academy. Scholar Program alumni should apply to become Graduate Scholars within 3 years of finishing the Scholar program. Graduates have a 5-year renewal term. One Graduate is elected to the executive committee and serves for 2 years.
