Anson L. Clark Scholars Program Application Details


Application Deadline: Due to system maintenance on February 10-12, 2023, the application deadline has changed to February 15, 2023 at 11:59 PM CST. 


Application Components

  1. Online application (details on how to access the online application are below)

  2. Essays - Short essays will be required for your application. (Essay prompts and character limits can be found here and can be worked on in advance of application access.)

  3. High School Transcripts - Transcripts must be uploaded to the application. Any AP Course test scores should be uploaded as well. (International students must have transcripts translated to English.)

  4. College Admissions Standardized Test Scores - Test scores should be uploaded. (At least a PSAT score is required if SAT or ACT scores are not available by the deadline. International students are not required to submit scores but highly encouraged to do so.)

  5. Recommendations - Three recommendations are required. At least two must be from teachers, and the third can be from a teacher, research mentor, principal investigator or from a volunteer organization.


    (Recommendations are completed through an online questionnaire and not an actual written letter. Be sure to communicate this to your recommenders. Instructions will also be automatically sent to referees once their information is input and saved. Recommendations are due two weeks later than the student deadline. International applicants must have recommendations translated to English.) 

  6. List of Top 5 Activities - The student should list what they consider their most important involvment activities/accomplishments. These can include academic honors or awards, research programs, and other extracurricular activities in and outside of school. (Please note - The essay prompt about the applicant's most fulfilling service experience creates an opportunity to write about a sixth activity. Keep this in mind, as a resume or an additional list of activities is not allowed.) 

*Supplemental information beyond the required application components will not be accepted. Test scores received after the deadline will also not be accepted.
