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.  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.
