There are four main categories of scholarships at Clemson University:
- First Year Freshmen Scholarships
- Diversity Scholarships
- Undergraduate Scholarships
- Additional Clemson Scholarship Opportunities
The eligible first year, as well as continuing students, are automatically considered for University scholarships and grants.
Transfer students must complete one full-time semester at Clemson University before they will be considered for any University awards. Official registrar office records will be used to determine major, class, GPA and other criteria. It is not necessary to apply for a certain scholarship or have prior knowledge of eligibility criteria, except for a few select restricted scholarships. These awards are listed under the "Restricted" scholarship link.
