Clarkson University Offers Scholarships To High Schoolers

The Clarkson School, Clarkson University’s early college program, is once again proud to offer the $60,000—or $15,000 per year—Clarkson School Scholars Award.

The award is based on a nomination from a student’s high school administration and is available to students who are currently in their junior year, have excelled academically and are interested in starting college early. To receive consideration, students are encouraged to speak with their high school guidance department.

Since 1978, The Clarkson School (TCS) has provided academic high achievers, who have progressed beyond their high school curriculum, the opportunity to start college early. Students take a full first-year college course load and have the chance to participate in professor-led research, join athletic teams, and get involved in student clubs and organizations.

As opposed to the typical freshman experience, TCS students live in their own residence hall with a dedicated staff. The living environment and sense of community are as important to TCS year as the enriching academic experience.

The residence building is reserved for TCS students, with the administrative offices connected to the residence hall and easily accessible. Each of the floors has a common area for socializing, studying and meetings, as well as a house advisor living on each floor.

Simply put, TCS students have the best of both worlds: access to all the resources and amenities of a nationally-ranked University, while also living in separate residential facilities with a dedicated faculty and staff to assist in the transition to a college setting.

Clarkson University’s main campus located in Potsdam, NY, and additional graduate program and research facilities in the Capital Region and Beacon, NY. Clarkson is a research university with more than 50 programs of study in engineering, business, arts, education, sciences and the health professions.
