The A. James Clark Scholars Program was founded through a partnership between the A. James & Alice B. Clark Foundation and the Johns Hopkins Whiting School of Engineering to honor the legacy of A. James Clark, a noted engineer, businessman, and philanthropist. Mr. Clark, a construction pioneer who constructed many of Washington, D.C.’s iconic buildings, never forget that his business successes started with an engineering scholarship.
The Clark Scholars Program is the A. James & Alice B. Clark Foundation’s signature academic program, which combines engineering, business, leadership, and community service. As part of a commitment to building the pipeline of future engineers, the Foundation has partnered with some of the nation’s leading engineering institutions, financially supporting students who exhibit strong academic and leadership potential.
