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

The Clark Scholars Program is a selective scholarship program for exceptional, high-performing students who are traditionally underrepresented in the engineering fields and exhibit a passion for “making a difference.” First-year applicants can indicate their interest in the program during the application process.

Invitations will be extended at the time of admission. The program is only available to incoming full-time, first-year students. Clark Scholars will be selected based on:

  • Financial need. To be considered for this program, applicants are required to file both the FAFSA and CSS Profile by the established deadlines.

  • High academic achievement

  • Demonstrated leadership

  • Community involvement
