Corporate Partnership Program


Texas Lutheran University has a rich history of commitment to preparing graduates for lives of purpose and service in the world. Business and industry have played a significant role at TLU for decades through generous philanthropic support, volunteerism and exchange of ideas. These partnerships have also led to opportunities for students and faculty through post-graduate employment, internships, grants and sponsored research, and more.

The TLU Corporate Partnership Program recognizes a core group of the university’s most loyal and dedicated business, foundation and corporate supporters. Corporate Partners make yearly generous and impactful gifts of $2,500-$20,000 to The Texas Lutheran Fund. These annual gifts are used exclusively to provide scholarships to students with financial need, or to a defined program of direct support to students. By supporting TLU through student scholarships, companies strengthen ties with the university and establish direct links with some of the finest undergraduate students entering the marketplace.

Corporate Partnership Levels

 In addition to the immeasurable impact each corporation has not only in the life of a student, but an impact on the world, Corporate Partners receive benefits that provide marketing and client cultivation opportunities. Each year a TLU student is matched with a Corporate Partner member, where the student and the member organization are aware of the financial benefit for the student. This relationship is particularly rewarding when the student and the Corporate Partner representatives have the opportunity to develop mentoring relationships.
