Attention: The Clarence Beecher Allen Scholarship application deadline has been extended to February 1st. Students who wish to be considered for the award must e-mail their essay to David Yokley by 5pm.
The first African-American student, Clarence Beecher Allen, entered The College of Wooster in the 1880s, and the College continues to be inspired by his achievements. Today, approximately four percent of Wooster's student body is African-American, and Wooster’s graduates have entered the fields of medicine, law, business, ministry, education, government, and social services. In 1988, Wooster's Board of Trustees created the Clarence Beecher Allen Scholarship to be awarded based on academic merit. These scholarships commemorate the achievements of Wooster´s first African-American graduate.
Clarence Beecher Allen scholars are selected based on outstanding intellectual achievement, extra-curricular involvement and leadership, personal merit, scholarship essay competition and on-campus interview. To compete for the Allen Scholarship students must submit one of the following essays by January 15. Responses must be typed, double-spaced and no more than 1,000 words. Submissions must be accompanied by a cover page, which lists the student's first and last name, high school, and topic selection. Included on each page, in the upper-right-hand corner, should be the student's last name and topic number.
Allen winners will receive an invitation to spend the weekend on campus to meet each other, hear from current faculty, staff and students, Wooster alumni and get a better feel for the College. Please save the date below if you are interested in applying for the Allen Scholarship.
