Through the generosity of Daniel ’79 and Terese Heintzelman, Clarkson University is offering a new scholarship program for high achieving Cape Cod students. The Heintzelman Scholars Program will provide high school students from the Cape Cod area with a $50,000 scholarship-$12,500 per year, for up to four years of undergraduate study at Clarkson.

“From my own personal experience and professional networks, Clarkson provides a transformative educational experience that changes lives,” said Mr. Heintzelman.  “Terese and I want to ensure high school students from our region have access to the same kind of opportunities to ignite their goals in a highly collaborative community committed to each student’s success.”

“Clarkson University educates the next generation of leaders. This generous gift from the Heintzelman family will ensure that continues. Students who participate in the Heintzelman Scholars Program will have the opportunities and hands-on access to build the mindset and practical skillsets that stretch their boundaries,” said President Anthony G. Collins.
