Staff Senate Scholarship

In 1989, the Senate established an academic scholarship that was awarded to the child of a staff member. Today, fifteen (15) $2,500 scholarships are awarded based on need and academic achievement.

Military Appreciation

Each year, as part of Military Appreciation Week in November, the Staff Senate hosts a brunch in honor of all active and former military service members attending or working at Clemson.

Blood Drives

Every 6-8 weeks, the Staff Senate hosts the Blood Connection bloodmobile on campus to help with the ongoing need for blood. In 2022, we impacted over 300 lives with the blood donated at these drives.
