For many important reasons, it is vital that technological fields attract and retain students from currently underrepresented minorities. Although Clarkson has made significant strides in diversifying its campus community during the past decade, the costs of a first-rate technological education remains a barrier to attracting and retaining minority students.

A $5-million scholarship endowment from the Wallace H. Coulter Foundation will assist Clarkson in providing more opportunities for these students.
