The Clarendon Scholars program prepares students to pursue careers as leaders in cities and urban areas around the globe. Twelve diverse students are selected from across the United States to receive a 75% tuition, four-year scholarship. Recipients are selected on the basis of demonstrated leadership in their school, church, and community; high academic aptitude, and a desire to impact those living in cities and urban areas through their future career.
Clarendon Scholars will engage with one another and program directors to achieve the five pillars of the honors program: personal growth, reconciliation and cultural fluency, community engagement, leadership development, and professional and career development. Students will benefit from mentoring relationships and peer support, equipping them to succeed in all aspects of their college experience and future career, further nurturing their vision to serve cities and urban areas.
