Clarence Beecher Allen Scholarship

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. In 1988, Wooster's Board of Trustees created the Clarence Beecher Allen Scholarship to be awarded based on academic merit and leadership. These scholarships commemorate the achievements of Wooster´s first African-American graduate.
