Great offer! If you are an international high school student, you could be eligible for scholarships to help pay for the cost of your undergraduate education at Clark University!
When you send in your admissions application, you will be automatically considered for several merit scholarships. The Presidential Scholarship requires a separate application; however, the rest of the merit scholarships do not.
Your eligibility for scholarships depends on your academic achievement (those indicated on your application for admission), not on your family need. However, international students who may qualify for scholarships are still expected to demonstrate the ability to cover a significant percentage of the cost of their education. This includes students who wish to be considered for the Presidential Scholarship. On average, international students at Clark pay $40,000 per year.
If you are awarded a merit scholarship, you will be notified when you receive your admissions decision.
