Clark University in the USA invites applications for the Presidential LEEP Scholarships for undergraduate studies in the 2020/21 academic session.
Awarded to approximately five students each year, the Presidential LEEP Scholarship is a prestigious award for students whose academic record and leadership potential places them at the very top of Clark’s applicant pool.
LEEP Scholars are relentlessly curious, have an appetite for learning, and are eager to make their marks in the world. LEEP Scholars are driven to develop new ideas, to grapple with issues of importance, and to engage with others on shared goals. LEEP Scholars persevere through setbacks, draw constructive ideas from diverse sources, and find creative solutions to daunting problems. They will be among the organisation´s top applicants academically and will demonstrate drive, creativity, and the passion to tackle complex challenges at home and abroad.
Worth of Award
- Full tuition, on-campus room and board for all four years, regardless of a family’s financial need
- Requires two additional scholarship essays due Feb. 1 for all applicants. Regular Decision applicants have until Feb. 1. EA/ED applicants who submit scholarship applications after Dec. 1 but before Feb. 1 will receive notification of their scholarship status in March.
- To maintain the scholarship, a student must meet year-to-year continuation requirements; these requirements are included with the student’s admission and awards letter.
How to Apply
- If you are interested in the Presidential LEEP Scholarship, simply check that option when you fill out the Common Application (available after Aug. 1).
- You’ll then receive detailed information — including the topics of the two short essays — on how to apply for the scholarship.
- Students will be notified in March if they have been selected for an interview.
- The Admissions Committee chooses finalists based on the strength of their applications for admission and other criteria identified by the committee. Last year, the committee reviewed more than 450 scholarship applications from the U.S. and around the world before inviting 15 finalists for interviews; of those 15, five were awarded the scholarship and became members of the incoming class.
Deadline: The final deadline for submitting the essays is Feb. 1, for Early Action, Early Decision and Regular Decision candidates.
