Introducing the 2020 Georgia Tech Clark Scholars

May 13, 2021

The third cohort of Georgia Tech Clark Scholars arrived on campus this past fall during the middle of the global pandemic. Things were certainly different on campus for these new students, however, they quickly bonded and began their journey at Tech together. 

Introducing the Clark Scholars 2020 cohort

The Georgia Tech Clark Scholars Program is a signature academic program that combines engineering, business, leadership and community service. Students selected for the Clark Scholars Program receive a four-year scholarship. In March 2018, the College of Engineering was given a $15 million endowment from the Clark Foundation to create a Clark Scholars Program. Ten students per year will be selected as Clark Scholars based on their financial need, academic accomplishments, engagement in engineering and leadership skills.

Throughout their four years in the program, the Clark Scholars will pursue a rigorous engineering education, enroll in business classes, participate in intensive summer programs, and work on semester-long community service projects.
