Veteran Scholarships

As a student veteran, there are many scholarships available to you. We encourage you to investigate and determine if any are right for you.

Veteran Scholarships through Clemson University

The Clemson Student Veteran Scholarship will be awarded to a verified student veteran beginning in the 2019-2020 academic year. The scholarship started as an initiative by the Clemson Student Veterans Association to support future Clemson student veterans. The initial goal was to raise $25,000 in four years to create one rolling $1000 scholarship to a veteran. To date, they have raised over $76,000 for this endowment.

The Aldridge Family Scholarships are awarded to military veterans or to children of veterans with preference given to children of fallen veterans. Student recipients are selected by the Office of Student Financial Aid; their office will oversee the administration of the scholarship. Student recipients must demonstrate financial need based on the FAFSA. FAFSA must be completed by the priority deadlines: January 2 for incoming freshman students and April 1 for continuing students. To apply, please send the application and a letter (or email) to the Office of Student Financial Aid stating your qualifications. Be sure to include your full name and Clemson XID number in your correspondence.
