Clemson University Diversity Scholarships

Clemson strives to offer outstanding academic programs to a diverse student body.

The University’s commitment to diversity is founded in the knowledge that intellectual, social and cultural diversity are essential ingredients in the educational process.

As part of Clemson’s effort to create a diverse student body, several academic scholarships have been developed. All accepted applicants are considered for these scholarships. With the exception of the Clemson Scholars Program, the criteria used in evaluating candidates include:

  • academic achievement, as demonstrated by high school performance and SAT/ACT scores;
  • personal background, as demonstrated by race and ethnicity, gender and geographic origin; and
  • interpersonal skills, as demonstrated by extracurricular activities, community service and work experience.
  • Additional conditions might apply for specific programs.

Students who wish to be considered for diversity scholarships should apply for admissions by December 1 and complete the admissions process by December 31. To be considered for need-based scholarships, applicants must also submit the FAFSA by March 1. All accepted entering freshmen will be automatically considered for each diversity scholarship for which they are considered eligible. Official registrar office records will be consulted to determine selection criteria.
