Established by CLARK Material Handling Company in Lexington, KY, this scholarship is open to graduating seniors attending public high schools in Fayette County, as well as to immediate family members of CLARK employees who reside in Kentucky. Students must demonstrate community involvement; have financial need; and have a cumulative GPA of 2.5 or higher. Students must be a resident of Kentucky and plan to attend a four-year college or university. Preference is given to first-generation scholarship students. The CLARK Scholars Scholarship provides an award of $1,000 that is renewable for up to four consecutive years of undergraduate study each year. Applications run from early November until the due date, and award notifications are sent in May.
Thanks to generous donors, we have awarded more than $5 million dollars to support students working to reach their full potential with educational opportunities beyond high school. We manage more than 50 scholarships, each with varying criteria and award amounts. While some of the scholarships are administered through a designated high school or organization, most are administered through our Scholarship Portal where students are matched with more than 25 scholarship opportunities.
