A. James & Alice B. Clark Foundation Statement on Passing of Director Lawrence C. Nussdorf

Our Signature Engineering Education Program

As part of our dedication to the engineers of the future, the Foundation established the A. James Clark Scholars Program. The Clark Scholars Program has been implemented at eleven of the nation’s top engineering institutions, financially supporting students of need who exhibit strong academic and leadership potential.

Students enrolled in the program pursue a rigorous curriculum of engineering study, take at least 1-2 business classes, and participate in community service. They also attend leadership seminars and events with leaders in the field.
