The Charlton Loan and Scholarship Program (CLASP) is an academic, merit based, program that financially awards students who have successfully matriculated from The Charlton School or wish to pursue postsecondary education. CLASP gives preference for students, in the judgment of the Trustees, for which without such support could not afford such education. The institution that the student chooses must be eligible for Federal financial assistance, unless waived by the Executive Committee. The program works in tandem with the Gay Brown Foundation as well as the Anna C. Manley Memorial Scholarship Fund.  



Any student who is successfully involved in or has successfully completed The Charlton School program is eligible to apply for financial assistance through C.L.A.S.P. The goal of the program is to encourage self-improvement through education. Students must be enrolled and provide a transcript of their most recent grades, or have applied to and been accepted by a post-secondary program of study. Subsequent awards should be based on successful completion of the previous semester/term work. If a student does not succeed in a previous semester/term, she can not reapply for at least 12 months and in addition must demonstrate in some manner how and why she has changed so that a different outcome should be expected.
