A message from the Dean for the Clark Community:

There are many different types of national and international undergraduate and graduate fellowships that offer students with exceptional academic records an opportunity to receive financial support for advanced undergraduate or graduate studies.

Ask yourself if you are a good candidate. Although the programs and qualifications differ greatly, there are some basic minimum requirements common to all fellowships and grants.

If you are interested in pursuing a scholarship or fellowship, you should have excelled in your undergraduate career, distinguished yourself in your major field of study, and earned a minimum GPA of 3.4. (This is to be viewed as a minimum satisfactory GPA. In almost all cases, a higher GPA is expected if one wishes to be competitive.)

If interested, you should begin to investigate the various scholarships and fellowships and your eligibility by the end of your sophomore year. Review the list of scholarships and fellowships, along with eligibility requirements, fields of study, and locations, that you'll find on this website. Please contact me at the Academic Advising Center (extension 7468) for additional information or contact the appropriate faculty scholarship advisor directly.
