2020 Clark Scholars Program Cancelled

As we continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation, it has become clear that we will need to cancel the 2020 Clark Scholars Summer Program. Please know that this decision was not made lightly.  We hold the health and safety of our students and guests as a top priority, and it is in the best interest of all involved to continue with the social distancing practices advised by Texas Tech University leadership who are working closely with local health officials.

We would like to express our sincere gratitude for all the work you put into your applications.  We understand that an enormous amount of time is invested in putting all the pieces together, and the cancellation comes as a disappointment. 

We hope you stay well in your communities, and we wish you the best as we strive to overcome this worldwide pandemic.
