Engineers are Problem-Solvers
A. James Clark never forgot that his business success began with an engineering scholarship. As his company grew, so did his dedication to fostering the growth and development of tomorrow’s engineering leaders. Today, our Foundation continues Mr. Clark’s legacy of investing in engineering scholarship through support of engineering education at several colleges and universities. From expanding access to students who could not otherwise afford a world-class engineering degree, to improving facilities and recruiting the best faculty, we invest to ensure that tomorrow’s engineers are equipped to solve society’s toughest problems.
