Prospective UVA A. James Clark Scholars

Clark Scholars Selection


Scholarships are designated for promising students from underserved communities admitted to the School of Engineering with demonstrated financial need, a track record of leadership and a commitment to community service. The University defines “underserved” to include a broad spectrum of students from backgrounds that currently lag behind in access to higher education in STEM fields, including women, racial and ethnic minorities, students with disabilities, first-generation college students, students from rural or densely urban areas, and other groups that are currently underserved. The Office of Admissions, in collaboration with Student Financial Services and the School of Engineering, will identify high-achieving students from diverse backgrounds with demonstrated financial need to be awarded scholarships as part of their recruitment and matriculation as Clark Scholars.
