Scholarships

Crowd of Clark College Scholarship recipients and families.



Funding for scholarships comes from local high schools, employers, local, civic and community organizations, foundations and private sources. The Clark College Foundation is one of the largest community college foundations in the country and offers several scholarships to Clark College students each year.

The scholarship application process is separate from the application for federal and state financial aid. Deadlines for scholarship applications are generally in late winter or early spring for the following school year.

Most scholarships are disbursed through the Financial Aid Office and eligibility varies according to the criteria established by the donor. For more information regarding scholarships, please come to the Financial Aid Office and ask for the Scholarship and Outreach Coordinator.
