Time to focus on your purpose
A Different Kind of Company
Our Purpose is to Inspire Yours
Clif Bar is a thriving company whose success came not from selling out – but by staying true to our aspirations: Sustaining our brands, business, people, community, and planet for the long-term.
With Clif Bar’s Business with Purpose Scholarship, we hope to inspire tomorrow’s business leaders to believe that it is possible to be successful while also staying focused on a greater sense of purpose.
Clif Bar is a different kind of company, so this is a different kind of scholarship.
Business with Purpose Scholarship
Explore Your Purpose
We’re not asking you to go find your first corporate job, and we’re not offering a free trip across Europe.
It could be an internship (paid or unpaid), a fellowship, a volunteer project, or even a gig at a mission-driven nonprofit.
How would you spend a year doing meaningful work if you didn't have to worry about your student loans?
We polled young people and found that 68% are likely to take an unfulfilling job to pay off debts, and the #1 source of debt is student loans.
This scholarship was designed to ease that burden and encourage tomorrow’s business leaders to prioritize their purpose.
Why purpose? Because we believe it’s a powerful place to launch any successful and meaningful business career.
Ideal candidates will:
Be a full-time senior graduating Spring 2019 from a four-year college or university in the US.
Have outstanding student debt.
Create a vision for doing something purposeful with the first year of their post-graduate life that will have impact on People, Planet or Communities.
Be motivated to bring a purpose-driven experience into their future business career.
Four scholarship winners will receive the following:
Up to $37,172 toward college debt repayment following completion of your 9-12 month experience.
$3,000/month stipend for the duration of your experience.
Mentoring from Clif employees to discuss the connections between your exploration of purpose and your future business career.
Applications officially open Fall 2018. Winners will be announced Spring 2019.
