Scholarship Details

This scholarship was created by women of color who are graduates of Clemson University.  It is intended to make a positive impact on future generations of Clemson graduates who are also underrepresented women of color. It will provide three educational scholarships for South Carolina high school seniors.  The recipients will be women of color who attend Clemson University for post secondary education in a STEM related field. Awards in the amount of $5000 will be paid in two installments of $2500 per semester during the recipients’ first year of school. A GPA of 2.0 or higher must be achieved during the first collegiate semester to receive the second installment of $2500. If a recipient is placed on academic probation before receiving the second installment, the recipient will need to present an academic improvement plan to be considered for any further award payment. The scholarship will contribute to the recipient’s 2020-2021 academic costs and will be paid directly to Clemson University when proof of university/college matriculation is received.  If you are awarded a Clemson Women of Color in STEM scholarship, you will be notified by the committee.
