Clarkson offers a wide range of institutionally funded Scholarships and Grants. Scholarships are merit based awards while grants are need-based awards. The Office of New Student Financial Aid will offer you scholarships and/or grants depending upon your admissions application and your financial need as reported on your FAFSA. These awards do not require repayment and are renewable annually provided you are making Satisfactory Academic Progress in your degree program. Certain scholarships may also require a minimum GPA or continuation in a specific degree program. Grants require you to submit a FAFSA each year and continue to demonstrate financial need.
