Financial aid awards come in two forms: grant/scholarship aid and self-help aid
- Grant Scholarship aid: funding to assist in paying educations costs. The source of these funds may include but not limited to, Clark University, the state and/or federal government and other private sources. Grant/scholarship aid does not have to be repaid
- Self-help aid: Includes awards such as loans, which need to be repaid and Federal Work-study, which is earned through service at the University or other organizations and paid directly to the student.
To be considered for need-based aid, we must receive the FAFSA and the CSS Profile completed by the custodial parent and non-custodial parent when applicable by the financial aid application deadlines.
