The applicant must be a child of a currently employed full-time Clemson University staff (non-faculty) member and fit the criteria for academic performance and financial need.
- Academic Performance: University policies state, in part, that students must have a minimum cumulative 2.5 GPA and be enrolled as a full-time undergraduate student to be considered for scholarship assistance. Official Registrar records are consulted to determine major, class, GPA and other selection criteria as of March 1. Incoming first-year students are also eligible to receive these scholarships which are restricted to undergraduates seeking their first Bachelor’s degree. They will be based on high school records, entrance examination scores and other qualifications established by the University Scholarships and Awards Committee. Admissions acceptance must be finalized before consideration can be given to prospective recipients.
- Financial Need: Applicants must also submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by January 2 for incoming freshmen and April 1 for upperclassmen. Contact Clemson's Office of Student Financial Aid at 864-656-2280 if you have questions about the FAFSA.
The use of this scholarship is not permitted for any summer sessions regardless of enrollment status and is subject to the Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy. More details regarding Satisfactory Academic Progress can be found at www.clemson.edu/financial-aid.
