Final Community Scholar awards will be offered based on commitment to community service, promise as a future community leader, recommendations, and optional telephone interview. As long as recipients of this award continue to remain in good standing with the university, help maintain a collaborative environment, and meet the program's academic and public service commitments during their four years at Clemson, they will remain a member of the Community Scholars program.
