Clarkston Scholars Program

The mission of the Clarkston Scholars program is to create equitable access and opportunities for low-income, first-generation college students with the intention of developing a future Clarkston steward.


What Makes a Clarkston Scholar?

A Clarkston Scholar is a highly-driven, first-generation college student who excels in the classroom, has an interest in consulting or the industries Clarkston serves, and has demonstrated financial need. The Clarkston Scholars Program will provide one sophomore attending a four-year college/university undergraduate program at a qualifying school a $10,000 scholarship award ($5,000 per year for junior and senior year). The Clarkston Scholars Program is more than just a monetary award; it is designed to combine the financial rewards of a scholarship with the mentoring and networking opportunities available through our diverse steward and client network. The Clarkston Scholar will participate in a mentorship program with Clarkston stewards to gain exposure to the professional world and help refine their strengths and interests.


The scholarship will only be awarded to a student who meets all scholarship requirements (see below). Applicants should be available to participate in an interview with a Clarkston Consulting representative as part of the finalist selection process.

The application for the 2022-2023 Clarkston Scholars Program is now closed. Check back in the fall of 2023 to learn more about our 2023-2024 application.
