As state and local support for higher education continues to decline, Clayton State students are being stretched by increasing educational costs and the need to "make ends meet." To attack this ongoing challenge, the Alumni Association has started a new Dream Makers Scholarship.
How great is the need for this Dream Makers Scholarship? Last year, 78% of our students demonstrated need with 6,000 students receiving some sort of aid (scholarships, grants, loans, etc.). However, 69% of these students still have unmet need.
When you become a member of the Alumni Association, in addition to making sure the Alumni Association can continue to provide meaningful programming, part of your gift will go to the Dream Makers Scholarship. Annual Members will see $10 of their $35 membership gift go to the scholarship, while New Graduate Members will see $5 of their $20 membership gift go to the scholarship. To help get this scholarship off the ground faster, if you become a member before July 1, the Alumni Association will match your gift!
