Presidential LEEP Scholarships

Make the LEEP. Get a full ride.

While the world has changed dramatically during the last century, traditional liberal arts programs have remained relatively static. Clark University's innovative model of higher education, Liberal Education and Effective Practice (LEEP), fills the gap by focusing not only on continuing to develop the traditional skills associated with liberal education—such as the ability to analyze information and communicate ideas—but also skills that are needed to meet 21st-century challenges, including resilience, persistence and the ability to link actions with consequences.

The Presidential LEEP Scholarship is for ambitious first-year applicants whose high school records place them at the top of Clark's applicant pool. You could benefit from everything Clark has to offer—at no cost for tuition, room or board. Think you have what it takes to be a Presidential LEEP Scholar?
