South Carolina - United States
One of the country’s most selective public research universities, Clemson University serves a uniquely driven and highly accomplished student body.
Ranked as the 21st best national public university by U.S.News & World Report, Clemson is a science- and engineering-oriented college dedicated to teaching, research and service. Founded in 1889, we remain committed both to world-class research and a high quality of life. In fact, 91 percent of our seniors say they’d pick Clemson again if they had it to do over.
Clemson’s retention and graduation rates rank among the highest in the country for public universities. We’ve been named among the best values by Kiplinger magazine in 2013, andSmartMoney in 2012 ranked us No. 7 in student return on investment.
Our beautiful college campus sits on 1,400 acres in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, along the shores of Hartwell Lake. But we also have research facilities and economic development hubs throughout the state of South Carolina — in Greenville, Greenwood, Columbia and Charleston.
The research, outreach and entrepreneurial projects led by our faculty and students are driving economic development and improving quality of life in South Carolina and beyond. In fact, a recent study determined that Clemson has an annual $1.83 billion economic impact on the state.
Just as founder Thomas Green Clemson intertwined his life with the state’s economic and educational development, the Clemson Family impacts lives daily with their teaching, research and service.

University scholarships and grants are awarded to both entering freshmen and upperclassmen. Scholarship awarding usually occurs twice a year; once in the spring for the next academic year and once in the fall (called make-up awarding) for the spring semester of the current academic year.
Scholarship award amounts and eligibility criteria vary widely. While the number of scholarships grows each year, funding is limited. Because of the high caliber of the applicant pool, many deserving students are not awarded scholarship assistance. All accepted entering freshmen and enrolled continuing students will be automatically considered for each University-administered scholarship for which they are eligible. Students must be U.S. citizens or eligible non-citizens (eligible for federal Title IV aid) to qualify for consideration.
