Partners

Connect Your Corporation with Clemson

Clemson University is preparing the next generation of corporate leaders and innovators. We offer many ways for your corporation or foundation to partner with us to reach that shared objective. In addition, we welcome your ideas for building a strong alliance. Please contact us Ann Marie Alexander to begin your partnership with Clemson University.

Students
By supporting students through undergraduate scholarships or graduate fellowships, your corporation can truly change the future. Clemson recruits the very highest achieving students, and your gift allows the University to attract these students and to fulfill a financial need.

In-kind gifts of equipment and software
To keep our programs as up-to-date and business-relevant as possible, we solicit your donations of equipment, software and supplies.

Facilities and laboratories
By providing support for new and existing facilities and laboratories, you will receive a corporate naming opportunity and improve the student environment at the University.

Faculty
Endowed chairs and professorships are critical to assure that top-quality faculty are recruited and retained at Clemson. Top faculty mean superior educational and research outcomes.

Research grants
Research is at the heart of the University. When you support research performed at Clemson, you invest not only in bright, innovative minds, but also in the advancement of industries such as yours. These visionaries — both faculty and students — answer questions, create products and solve problems.

Corporate matching funds
When you provide matching gift programs for your employees, you not only encourage their philanthropy, you increase the impact of their gift on the University. To find out if your company offers gift matching, contact your human resources representative. Or, simply search our list of companies who will increase the impact of your gift through gift matching.  

Visiting executives
Your expertise helps our students understand the current climate outside the classroom. Visiting executives also introduce some of our most talented students to your corporation.

Recruiting
Our students are the greatest asset that we can share with the business world. For access to graduating students, contact the Michelin Career Center.

Co-op Education
Clemson offers opportunities for students to alternate semesters of academic studies with semesters of paid, career-related work experience. The Cooperative Education Program is a valuable partnership between the University and a number of businesses and government agencies.

Internships
As the job market grows increasingly competitive, internships are often the deciding factor for employers. This partnership among industry, business and the University’s students offers an advantage to both employers and the student participants.
