Brooks Institute for Sports Science

About the Brooks Institute

The Brooks Institute helps generate opportunities for both engineering and non-engineering majors to successfully pursue a meaningful motorsports experience while enrolled at Clemson. We do this by:
  • Offering institute-sponsored student scholarships.
  • Actively supporting the Formula SAE and SAE Baja international student competition teams.
  • Creating University-driven private sector partnerships with racing teams and organizations — designed to deliver motorsports industry-sponsored internships and scholarships, targeting qualified Clemson students.

Ultimately, the Clemson University undergraduate motorsports experience is both self-directed and faculty guided. 

Key elements of a successful student experience include:

  • Active participation on student competition teams.
  • Pursuit of available scholarship and internship opportunities with motorsports organizations.
  • Direct engagement with faculty advisors who can assist students in targeting high-performance engineering and business/marketing course work applicable to motorsports.
