You Can Ensure the Experience

You can directly benefit students through scholarships, academic programs, co-curricular programs, facilities, and volunteering.

Scholarships

The most common reason given for not attending Clarkson is the need for financial assistance to close the “gap.” The gap is the difference between available financial aid the cost of higher education. And with over 95% of our students in need of financial assistance, the gap can be large. You can make a difference in a student’s life by closing that gap.

Academic Programs

Clarkson prepares students to make a difference in the world. Clarkson’s special mix of critical-thinking and hands-on experiences graduates leaders in a global society. Your gifts have a direct impact on classroom, research and internship experiences.

Co-curricular Programs

Sports teams, student government, radio, TV, theater; they all provide leadership training opportunities, enhance social skills, and develop team-building expertise. Your gifts help students grow and mature, and master the skills necessary to become leaders.

Facilities

State-of-the-art facilities require constant maintenance and upgrades to train students and meet the demands of the business world. Your gifts keep us on the leading edge of educating students who will go on to change our world.

Volunteering

Mentoring students, making class presentations, hosting chapter events, providing internships, hiring graduates, recruiting new students; these are all ways you can help Clarkson achieve its mission. Your gift of your time has a lifelong impact on students.
