May the 4th Be With You

May the 4th Be With You is a one-day giving challenge to enlist the support of our most dedicated alumni to provide a major boost to the Clarkson Fund. These gifts are essential to ensuring extraordinary student experiences and continued financial support as they pursue a Clarkson education. Our graduates are among the most prepared for the next phase of their journey. In fact, Clarkson boasts 97% job placement or acceptance to graduate school within six months of commencement. Throughout their time on campus, students are exposed to cutting edge research opportunities, hands-on experiences that allow them to push their creative abilities to the max and many receive financial support which is the deciding factor in their ability to attend Clarkson. The numerous opportunities that await each freshman class are a direct result of support provided by generous donors like you. We hope you will join us on this very special day to show current students how invested you are in their abilities and to continue providing opportunities for future students.
