National Scholars Program

Current Scholars

The current National Scholars are the most academically and geographically diverse ever at Clemson. They major in disciplines from all five of Clemson's academic colleges. And they come from as close as Greenville, SC, and as far away as Wasilla, AK.

Just as they were selected in part for their commitment to leadership and service, Scholars continue to be involved in extracurricular activites at Clemson. In fact, most hold leadership positions in campus organizations. Our current Scholars are active in student government, The Tiger student newspaper, Engineers Without Borders, Phi Beta Kappa, WSBF-FM, intramural sports, marching band, fraternities and sororities, and Habitat for Humanity, to name but a few.

National Scholars also work closely with Clemson professors through the Creative Inquiry program and in conducting other research.
