The Clark Scholars Program

The Stevens Institute of Technology Clark Scholars Program aims to prepare students to emulate the legacy of Mr. A. James Clark—exemplified by leadership, humanitarianism, business acumen, and technical prowess—as undergraduate students and later as professionals in their field. Clark Scholars follow a rigorous technical curriculum in engineering, computer science, or cybersecurity and participate in numerous co-curricular opportunities to enhance their Stevens experience. Clark Scholars will earn a minimum of nine credit hours in leadership, business, and ethics to complement their technical and general education curriculum.

The Clark Scholars Program at Stevens is an invitation-only scholarship program for exceptional, high-performing students who are traditionally underrepresented in the engineering fields and exhibit a passion for making a difference through community service. Invitations will be extended at the time of admission. There are no additional application requirements, and the program will only be available to incoming full-time, first-year students.

Clark Scholars receive the following program benefits:

  • Individualized mentoring and support
  • Additional seminars in leadership, ethics and business
  • Opportunities to participate in community service events as a group
  • An annual cultural passport that enables Scholars to attend various artistic, musical and educational events in the NYC metropolitan area
  • Access to a stipend of up to $5,000 for three undergraduate summers to support participation in one the following:
  • Research opportunities guided by a faculty advisor
  • An international experience (e.g. study, service, internship or research abroad, approved by the Office of International Programs)
  • The option to participate in the Accelerated Master's Program, which provides the opportunity to complete a bachelor's and master's degree sequentially

Clark Scholars may remain in the program for up to eight academic semesters provided they maintain a 3.2 grade point average (GPA), make satisfactory academic progress toward the degree, and complete required courses. The cumulative GPA will be reviewed annually.
