Creating Pathways. Changing the World.

Clark University encourages undergraduate students, graduate students, and recent alumni to apply for competitive fellowships and scholarships to advance their research, teaching, and career trajectories. Our mission is to create a pathway to prestigious awards by educating the Clark community about national fellowship and scholarship opportunities. We will advise and assist interested students in the various phases of applying, from planning, through writing personal statements and proposals, to interviewing.


Clark/Washburn Undergraduate Essay Contest

The Clark University/Washburn University Essay Competition has been established thanks to a generous donation from the Paul Family Foundation to engage undergraduate students from across each campus. Students will have the opportunity to broaden their thinking about topics important to themselves and to our country and to share their ideas in a formal written essay with the opportunity to earn scholarships of as much as $10,000.
