The goal of Clarion University's Office of Scholarships is to support the academic aspirations of prospective and current students. The office is dedicated to helping students financially access a quality education.

Most of Clarion's scholarships are funded by way of private support through the Clarion University Foundation, Inc., and are overseen by the Office of Scholarship Administration within the division of Enrollment Management. The university has a director of scholarships who oversees the selection process for recipients of the merit and endowed scholarships.  

All students also are encouraged to fill out a Free Application for Federal Student Aid, which increases your odds of receiving additional financial support through grants and other types of financial aid. When researching scholarships, be aware of scholarship deadlines, scholarship contacts and certain preferences established by some donors. High school seniors must be admitted by January 15, 2016 to receive priority consideration for merit scholarships.

For more information or any questions you have regarding scholarships, contact, David McFarland, director of scholarships, at 814 393 2108. Follow him on Twitter @Clarionschlshps and read his blog.
