Elliot Clough

Elliot Clough found in the University of Denver an academic program that allows him to cultivate his scientific and artistic sides.

A junior pursuing a double major in molecular biology and theater, as well as a minor in vocal music, Clough is as comfortable on stage as he is in the biology lab. When he isn’t studying, Clough works as an assistant costume designer and prop master through a work-study position in DU’s Department of Theatre. 

His ambitious agenda is made possible by a long list of scholarships. He received the Leda B. Schwartz Scholarship, a Volunteers in Partnership Scholarship and the DU Provost Scholarship. The funds allow him to attend DU for about the same cost as a state school.
