The Mission of the National Scholars Program

In collaboration with other University offices and programs, the mission of Clemson’s National Scholars Program is as follows:

  • Provide a competitive scholarship that covers all tuition, fees and other required expenses.
  • Coordinate a rewarding summer of study and travel in Great Britain.
  • Create and program intellectually challenging and rewarding enrichment opportunities.
  • Provide individual and group advising that addresses and enhances the National Scholars’ interests and skills.
  • Prepare the National Scholars to excel in graduate school and on fellowship applications.
