About This Scholarship

Academic recruitment scholarships are given to incoming first-year freshmen based on their admissions applications starting in the autumn. These scholarships are extremely competitive. Each year, these scholarships are subject to modification. Financial aid applications do not need to be submitted separately. By the Regular Decision deadline of January 2, students who want to be considered for First-Year Freshmen Scholarships must submit their Undergraduate Admissions application and all necessary documents. For domestic out-of-state students with outstanding high school grades, Clemson University offers the Out-of-State Tuition Scholarship. Each semester, up to $500 in named awards (usually sponsored by donors) will be given to recipients of the out-of-state tuition awards. 

Eligibility Criteria For Clemson University Out-of-State Tuition Scholarship

  • Enrollment status: First-time freshman scholarships are typically available to students who are enrolling or planning to enroll as full-time students in an accredited college or university for the first time. Some scholarships may also consider part-time enrollment.
  • Field of study: While some scholarships are open to students in any field of study, others may be specific to certain majors or areas of interest. Make sure to check if there are any specific requirements related to your intended field of study.
  • Extracurricular activities and achievements: Scholarship programs often value students who have demonstrated involvement in extracurricular activities, leadership roles, community service, or significant achievements in academic or non-academic areas. Highlighting your extracurricular involvements and accomplishments can strengthen your scholarship application.
