University scholarships and grants are awarded to both entering freshmen and upperclassmen. Scholarship awarding usually occurs twice a year; once in the spring for the next academic year and once in the fall (called make-up awarding) for the spring semester of the current academic year.
Scholarship award amounts and eligibility criteria vary widely. While the number of scholarships grows each year, funding is limited. Because of the high caliber of the applicant pool, many deserving students are not awarded scholarship assistance. All accepted entering freshmen and enrolled continuing students will be automatically considered for each University-administered scholarship for which they are eligible. Students must be U.S. citizens or eligible non-citizens (eligible for federal Title IV aid) to qualify for consideration.
Transfer students must complete one full-time semester at Clemson University before they will be considered for any University scholarships. Official registrar office records will be consulted to determine major, class, GPR and other selection criteria. It is not necessary to apply for a particular scholarship or have prior knowledge of eligibility criteria except for a few select restricted scholarships. These specific scholarships are listed under the "Restricted" scholarship link.
