Scholarships for First-Year Students
Clark Merit Scholarships
Clark University has several different merit- and achievement-based scholarships, outlined below. Every applicant to Clark will be considered for these scholarships. No separate application is required, except where noted.
Admitted students who have excelled in secondary school and whose academic achievement and personal qualities indicate they will perform at the highest level when they enroll at the University will be given top consideration for these awards. Decisions about which scholarship, if any, an admitted student will receive are based on academic qualifications as indicated in their application for admission, not on family need. Students who are awarded a merit-based scholarship will be notified of this when they receive their admissions decision. Approximately 60% of our students receive merit-based awards.
Students whose financial need is greater than the amount of the scholarship may be eligible for additional assistance through a combination of grants, loans and work-study. Information about need-based financial aid.
