A Clark graduate degree can cost less than you think.

Clark University master’s and doctoral degree programs award generous merit-based scholarships to U.S. and international students who demonstrate academic potential and a commitment to Clark community values.

Merit-based scholarships are assessed during the application review process, and no additional application is required.

More than 90% of Clark graduate students, both U.S. and international, receive scholarships.
Scholarship awards vary by department and program, and may total up to 50% of tuition.
