Endowed and Sponsored
Various alumni, individuals, foundations, and corporations have donated funds to establish scholarships for Clarkson students who meet certain criteria. These criteria may include, but are not limited to, specific majors, GPA, evidence of leadership, geographical location of hometown or high school, class year, financial need and extracurricular activities. Endowed scholarships provide assistance to students in perpetuity. Sponsored scholarships provide assistance on an annual basis.
Separate applications are not required. Students who meet the criteria for these scholarships are reviewed by the Financial Aid Committee.
Scholarships established through the generosity of Clarkson benefactors are awarded with the understanding that there is a moral obligation for the student to repay the funds received. By accepting the scholarship award, the student accepts the moral responsibility to contribute to Clarkson when financially able to do so. By fulfilling this moral obligation, the student will help replenish the scholarship fund, ensuring Clarkson will be able to offer institutional aid to future students. A list of the endowed and sponsored scholarships can be found in the college catalog.
