Clark Society Scholars

 We are pleased to introduce the Clark Society Scholars for the 2020-2021 academic year. First awarded in 1999, the scholarship has now supported 87 students who represent TCU with the highest degree of character and leadership. This highly-competitive merit scholarship rewards students for their academic excellence and involvement during their time at TCU and encourages them to stay engaged with TCU after graduation. 

Because of your support, this year the endowed fund is awarding five scholarships of $12,500 -- the most funding ever awarded in a single year. Please join us in welcoming the 2020-2021 Clark Society Endowed Scholars.
