In Fall 2023, the A. James Clark School of Engineering at the University of Maryland welcomed 10 exceptional young engineers from across the state of Maryland as its newest class of A. James Clark Scholars. The students selected for this highly distinguished program represent some of the most promising scholars among Maryland Engineering's first-year class.

The A. James Clark Scholars Program, a signature A. James & Alice B. Clark Foundation initiative, recruits, supports, and graduates exceptionally talented engineering students with financial need who are poised to take on society’s grand challenges. In October, the Clark Foundation and UMD announced that the program—implemented at 11 of the nation’s top engineering institutions—has a new permanent home at Maryland Engineering and will be known as the Clark Scholars Program Network.
