For the first time ever, $1 million in scholarships, awards and financial support will be awarded to students this academic year!
We are on track to make 625 awards this fiscal year to about 500 individual students.
Every year, Clark College Foundation transforms the lives of students by providing scholarships that are made possible through the generous support of individuals, organizations and foundations. The foundation’s endowment market value is in the top five for public community colleges in the nation. As a result, we offer a diverse selection of scholarships to Clark College students every year.
A variety of our scholarships require students to maintain a certain GPA or enrollment level in order to qualify for the award. Completing one application allows students to be considered for the majority of our available funding. The deadlines occur twice each year – April and October.
Scholarships ease the financial burden and make college possible. Talented individuals, regardless of socioeconomic status, are supported so they can discover or reroute their path. As a partner in their education, you assist in their journey and offer them a community to belong to.
Clark College Foundation has a variety of scholarship options already in place for you to choose from, or you can start your own scholarship.
Penguin Promise at Clark College
Penguin Promise is a college preparatory and scholarship program partnership between Clark College and the Boys & Girls Clubs of Southwest Washington (BGCSW) that inspires the dream of a college education and prepares members of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Southwest Washington to graduate from high school, and enroll and succeed at Clark College.
The college and BGCSW work collaboratively to ensure the readiness of the select students. Once admitted to Clark, students are matched with a mentor and receive top-off scholarship funding to assist with tuition, fees and books.
Penguin Promise participants will engage in college prep activities that include entrance exams, the college application processes, financial aid counseling and many other support mechanisms to ensure success.
