Clark Scholars Eligibility and Requirements

The A. James Clark Scholars Program at Stevens Institute of Technology was made possible thanks to a generous gift by the A. James & Alice B. Clark Foundation to honor the legacy of the late A. James Clark, a noted engineer, philanthropist and founder of the Maryland-based Clark Construction Group LLC, one of the nation’s leading privately-held construction companies.

Clark Scholars Eligibility

  • High academic achievement

  • Demonstrated leadership

  • Community involvement
