The National Scholars Program is Clemson University’s most prestigious and selective undergraduate scholarship. The program provides intellectually challenging and rewarding enrichment opportunities for its students and prepares Scholars to excel in their chosen field.

Our graduates are employed by major organizations such as the National Institutes of Health, Amazon Web Services, Tesla, SpaceX, Exxon Mobile, Teach for America, the U.S. Department of Justice, and Compass Lexecon. Many have also pursued postgraduate degrees at universities such as the Baylor College of Medicine, Queen's University Belfast, Vanderbuilt University, and Harvard University.
